Variety: Gruner Veltliner
While we’ve worked with wines from Rajat Parr fpr year (cue Evening Land, Sandhi, DDLC), the new project Phelan Farm has a new aim. The goal here is regenerative farming with its home base in the coastal region of Cambria at Steiner Lake. In this journey, he uses varieties one might use in the Savoie or Jura regions of France, Gruner, Syrah or even sometimes using apples as the base. The fruit is often estate fruit, though it is often purchased from other trusted farmer friends. The wines show American terroir through the lens of a European. The production is miniscule and the wines are special.
When Raj came across a farmer in Sta Rita Hills growing Gruner, he couldn’t resist this Austrian variety he loves so dearly. The wine does have 24 hours on its skins which evolved into a lovely waxy finish. Just 1200 bottles are produced.
