67% Chardonnay 24% Sauvignon Blanc 9% Petit Manseng | 12.5% ABV | American Appellation
The 2022 Fieldwork is visually clear and bright, with a straw yellow and chartreuse color.
The wine is meant to be highly aromatic. With its stainless steel fermentation and early bottling, we are hoping to capture all those fresh fruit and floral flavors that are most expressed in the beginning stages of its evolution.
Because of its time on skins, there is a light textural aspect to the Fieldwork as well. Skin contact can add phenolics and these can help heighten the natural acidity present in the wine. The Chardonnay helps to tame some of the grassiness of the Sauvignon Blanc

The 2022 Fieldwork should be enjoyed now, but likely will mature nicely for the next 5 years.
