Joshua’s Starry Night Vineyards, Calaveras County

35% Syrah, 40% Viognier, 25% Mourvèdre

Bright acidity with a ripe fruity profile, mainly cherries, and raspberries. Savory finish with minerality shining through.

Leisure’s winemaking is steeped in traditional Georgian winemaking methods. Co-fermented in qvevri, the traditional wine-aging vessel used in the region of Imereti in the country of Georgia. Leisure produces all of his wines using the qvevri, which function as both fermentation and aging vessels.
