Now this, this is a wild one and once we heard about the winemaker it began to make sense. His wines are just like he is. Brendan Tracey is a New Jersey native that moved to San Francisco in the 70s and became inspired by the untamed and rebellious California punk rock scene. He moved to Paris and spent just under 30 years in music and radio before deciding to hang that all up and study winemaking. A true believer in letting each harvest speak he uses only organically grown grapes and practices very minimal intervention in the cellar. This, very wild and natural wine from the Loire Valley, is aged one year in used barrels and vats, it is that extended lees contact that gives this wine its silky and curvy mouth feel. The aromatics shift from stone fruit cooked in brown butter to wild dill and back again. Nerdy but not too much so. Unfiltered so that cloudy look is very normal. So much fun to drink and perfect for bigger flavored seafood or chicken dishes.
