Keep Wines Delta White 2018

Clarksburg, California

Certainly a blend you wouldn’t see in Italy! A 50/50 blend of Falanghina and Cortese - two grapes traditionally found at opposite ends of the country in Italy! It works though, it really, truly does.

Sourced from the Lost Slough vineyard, a site that JJ first got to know when working for Abe Schoener of Scholium Projecct fame. It’s a site in the Sacramento River Delta, once below sea level many millenia ago. The soils are fine, sandy, and chock full of seashell fragments, lending a really saline edge to all wines made from this site. It’s a wine of two stories really - on first opening, it is super linear, fine and very delicate salty green apple crunch, with almost Chablis esque characteristics. Let it warm in the glass a little and breathe, perhaps even double decant a few times, and it fleshes out beautifully in to something with a more unctuous profile of apple blossom, creme anglaise and more rounded characterisitcs. It still has that superb whip crack acid and salty lick, but a wine of more depth for sure.

As with all Keep wines, low alcohol (12%), minimal added sulphur and no filtering or fining.

About the Producers

Winemakers Jack Roberts (Mathiasson Wines Assistant Winemaker) and Johanna Jensen (formerly with Scholium Project and Broc Cellars) create wines influenced by the old world with less ripe fruit, minimal manipulation, total transparency of terroir, and great ageability.  In the vigneron tradition they do much of the work themselves from vineyard to bottling. Their mission is extremely close to our heart and we are so happy to be sharing their wines in the UK.
