The Launch!

I'm excited to announce the launch of Highlawn Wine Company.  The product of a year and a half of work, the wines are ready to be in your hands!  I'm happy to be starting with a special wine from a unique vineyard about to make its mark on California wine.

Rorick Vineyard, Calaveras County

2014 Albariño
Rorick Vineyard, Calaveras County
48 cases made
$22

Rorick Vineyard in Calaveras County combines the sun of the high altitude Sierra Foothills with unusual soils consisting of schist and limestone peaking through a thin layer of topsoil.  The Albariño from these slopes is aromatic, early to ripen fully and maintains its fresh acidity.

The result of an unusually long barrel fermentation (nearly six months) and aging on the lees, the 2014 Rorick Vineyard Albariño is a textured example of Albariño.  Apricot fruit combines with spicy notes on the nose, and the acidity of the wine leads to a lingering finish.

The online store is not quite ready to launch, so in the meantime you can purchase the wine from me directly in person.  To order, contact me via email at pcuadra@highlawnwine.com.

Thank you everyone for your help in starting Highlawn Wine Company.  I'm looking forward to sharing many more wines with you soon.
