ABOUT AMBYTH WINES:
AmByth Estate is Paso Robles' First Winery to Produce Demeter Certified Biodynamic Wines. We gained our certification from the Demeter Association in 2006. We utilize the Biodynamic method of farming to enhance our observations of nature, and use these intimate insights as tools that allow our 20 acres of vineyards to express their true character through the grapes it produces. We want our grapes to be as unique to AmByth Estate as your thumbprint is to you. The estate consists of 20 acres of vineyards and 600 olive trees dedicated to Biodynamic farming principles since their initial planting. 20 acres of untouched oak forests surround the vineyards.
Each harvest is done by hand with the help of friends and family. All fruit is whole-clustered, and by foot stomping we extract the juices without breaking the stems. All wines go through spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts and also go through malolactic on their own without us introducing any kind of synthetic laboratory- born yeast or bacteria. We do not manipulate this special natural process of grape juice turning into wine but instead oversee the progress over time. The wine is then transferred to clay pots called Amphorae. The Georgians and Romans have been using Amphorae for over two thousand years. We have been using the beautiful Amphora since 2011 and consider their use as being "progressive regressive". They impart next to no flavor and allow the wine to breath in a way that makes a very classical distinctive flavor and texture that we love. No sulfites are ever added to the wine.
ABOUT THIS BOTTLE:
100% Grenache Blanc OW (Orange Wine)
This Grenache Blanc was gently pressed by foot and fermented in Amphora for 10 days with skin contact. After pressing off, the wine aged in 500 liter amphora for 11 months. This is a white wine made in the style of a red wine, it has a lovely orange hue and exhibits deep tannins and complexity.
"This newly released vintage is no disappointment. A floral and stone fruit nose whisks you up in the air to a different land than pounds you to the ground with depth and minerality. What a rush" Gelert, Winemaker
