Parcellaire Blanc #1 is equal parts Chardonnay and Welschriesling. The Welschriesling is whole cluster fermented in qvevri amphoras on the skins then pressed and matured in 500 litre Oak barrels while the Chardonnay is pressed whole cluster and fermented aged in Acacia barrels for eight months under naturally occurring flor.
The wine is rich, clean, and unique fruit profile in the vein of white peach, yellow apple, yellow pear, and quince but with baking spice, fresh cream, pie shell, savoury herbs, and a distinctive salinity. The texture from the time on skins and the textured acidity create a fuller body than its gentle alcohol would imply. This wine is truly one of a kind.
