From: Paso Robles, California
Varietal: 80% Cabernet Franc, 15% Chardonnay, 5% Molinara
Tasting Notes: This wine has a unique raw character, loaded with energy and charisma. Notes of summer strawberries, fresh rosemary sourdough loaves, and a hint of jade citrus mint.
Pairing: This beautifully fresh and crisp pét nat is extremely versatile when it comes to pairing. The winemaker recommends drinking this alongside fruit salad at your next picnic (yum!), but it would also taste lovely with Sam Sifton’s recipe for Chicken Enchiladas with Salsa Verde.
About. Field Recordings is 40-year old winemaker Andrew Jones’ personal catalog of the people and places he values most. Spending his days as a vine nursery fieldman planning and planting vineyards for farmers all over California, Andrew is sometimes offered small lots of their best fruit on the side. Having stood in just about every vineyard on the Central Coast, he has a keen eye for diamonds in the rough: sites that are unknown or under-appreciated but hold enormous untapped potential. As friendships are made and opportunities are embraced, Andrew produces small quantities of soulful wine from these unusual, quiet vineyards.
According to the ancient pétillant naturel method of sparkling winemaking–also known as the méthode ancestrale–this blend was bottled before all of its residual sugar had finished fermenting into alcohol. This left the fermentation to finish in the bottle, emitting the carbon dioxide that gives the wine its light bubble spritz as well as the small ring of sediment (lees, a byproduct of fermentation) that you’ll see at the bottom of the bottle.
