Matthiasson-Ribolla Gialla-"Matthiasson Vineyard" Napa Valley-2013

Ribolla Gialla
"Matthiasson Vineyard" Napa Valley


Grape of Friuli, Italy and Slovenia origin. Planted in Napa in 2001 (“Vare”). From Steve & Jill Matthiasson’s “Home Vineyard” in Oak Knoll District, Northeast Napa-town (they budded over "Vare" Ribolla to their vineyard). Whole cluster ferment for  3 weeks, then aged 20 months in neutral barrel. Technically an “orange wine,” but the color is pale golden, not orange. Taste is unique yet non-aggressive. Get grapefruit, Bartlett pears, hazelnut and Meyer lemon curd. We like it with smoked ham and salmon. 387 cases made.
