2010 Agharta Cataclysm
The 2010 Cataclysm is a blend of 60% Viognier, 30% Roussanne and 10% Marsanne all from the upper section of the Spirit Rock Block at Alder Springs Vineyard in the northern most section of Mendocino County. We planted this block under the brilliance of Stewart Bewley the owner of Alder Springs Vineyard and we believe this site allows these white Rhone varieties to ripen fully while maintaining terrific acidity and freshness and a moderate alcohol, which can mar the brilliance of these delightful blends.
Waxy lemon, pear and fig aromas dominate this silky and pungent white. Zesty and vibrant with lots of depth and concentration of fruit and minerals. The concrete fermentation gives the wine a dense texture and full mouth-feel, while the decomposed sandstone soils loan the wine an incredible lightness and lift. Delicious now, but it will only improve for 3-5 years in your cellar.
Decant 20-30 minutes before serving.
