This special 125 case lot from the famed 135 year old Bechthold Vineyard in Lodi, is believed to be the oldest surviving Cinsault Vineyard in the world. This dry farmed, organic vineyard has very low yield, and produces a very complex expression of this variety, normally best as a blending grape.

Always 100% whole cluster, foot tread, fermented with native yeast in small ½ ton bins. Gently pressed to neutral barrel to age on heavy lees for 8 months, then bottled.  A thought provoking wine Eric Asimov of the NY Times called an example of “delightful, delicious wine from under-appreciated grapes."

Who says orange wines have to be tannic and/or oxidized? This is a gentler, more approachable orange wine. 

Centime, French for Penny, is Two Shepherds small annual production of skin fermented Rhone white wines, known as "orange" wine, because of the color the skin contact gives. The 2014 release is 100% Grenache Blanc from the Russian River Valley.

/ Skin Fermented/Orange Wine
SKU: AW14CENCC
 

A unique wine from an obscure grey skinned grape, originally from the Jura.  The grapes are the only planting in CA, from a 40 year old vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Fermented with native yeast on the skins for five days to extract color, flavor and texture, then aged in neutral barrels for 8 months, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.  Our previous release (2015 vintage) was whole-cluster, while the 2017, our 5th consecutive vintage from this vineyard, is destemmed, allowing a fresh and vibrant expression.

This collaboration wine brings together two passion projects: Two Shepherds of Sonoma, and Fields Family Wines of Lodi. Winemakers William and Ryan share a love of Rhone wines, and strive to highlight many of its relatively unknown grapes grown in California. With only an acre of Grenache Blanc in the Russian River Valley and less than 20 acres in Lodi, this wine illustrates the potential of both cool and Mediterranean climate Grenache Blanc in California. Both wines are fermented with native yeast, 50% fermented in stainless steel, 50% in neutral barrel, then aged 7 months in neutral barrel.
