OLD LOVE is a dry, white blend that dreams of capturing the summer sun in a bottle of wine. Aromas of fresh cut blood orange, salty lemon and aloe vera typify this racy, texturally rich white wine. Guided by mother nature, we combine the Big Salt process, with a proprietary aging process to elevate the terroir that each of our five vineyards bring us (citrus, salinity, bright acidity, florality, ripe apricot). OLD LOVE is more versatile than any white wine we’ve produced thus far - it will pair with nearly any white wine appropriate dish, but is best enjoyed on the porch with nothing else to do.
