  • A delightful example of California's historic Mission variety, boasting wild notes of rosehip, rhubarb, delicate mint, and vibrant, spicy black fruit that coat the textured palate. A dry winter with below-average rainfall and a cool start to spring kept the vines dormant until late March. The spring months remained dry and cool, slowing shoot growth and contributing to low yields and small berries. Once the fruit was under full canopy later in the season, it developed evenly with concentrated flavours, colour, and texture. Harvest commenced on August 13th with favourable, temperate weather throughout the picking season.

Small lots were fermented separately, with 50% of the whole clusters imparting complexity. Fermentation was carried out in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks with wild, native yeasts. The lots were pressed after 22 days of vinification. The wine was then aged in 100% neutral oak barrels for eight months before being bottled without any fining and just gentle filtration.

A wonderful expression of California's historic Mission variety, with wild notes of rosehip, rhubarb and delicate mint and bright, spicy black fruit enveloping a textured palate

The Mission vines are planted in the Scribe estate vineyard on the southwest-facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain in the Southern Mayacama volcanic mountain range. The Mission vines were planted in 2017 from plant material propagated from cuttings from vines planted in the late 1880s in Central California. Their lineage and presence at the Scribe Estate are an homage to the earliest days of California winegrowing history. The Mission grape was the first European grapevine cultivated in California but has been rarely planted post-prohibition. It thrived on the estate in the 1800s, and letters detailing the quality of the Mission wines from this property were recently discovered. In the spirit of curiosity and exploration, 0.8 hectares of Mission vines have been planted before the Hacienda to explore its potential in the new era. The vines are cultivated sustainably and hand-harvested in the night's cool.
