Made with perfectly ripe, sun-kissed grapes. Smooth and elegant with a soft and juicy character. Packed with flavours of cherry and bramble fruit with spicy hints on the finish.

From the Lodi Region in California.

Grown in a Mediterranean Climate - influenced by the San Francisco Bay to the East.

California does really well with Burgundy's famous duo of varieties, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This example benefits from a small dollop of Shiraz to lend added mid-palate weight and texture, though the over-riding impression is of bramble and hedgerow fruits and the subtle smoke of autumn. A real treat.

Mavericks is a surfing location in northern California outside Pillar Point Harbour, just north of the town of Half Moon Bay at the village of Princeton-by-the-Sea. After a strong winter storm in the northern Pacific Ocean, waves can routinely crest at over 8 m (25 ft) and top out at over 18 m (60 ft). Routinely, waves that break can be recorded on seismometers. The break is caused by an unusually shaped underwater rock formation.

In early March 1967, Alex Matienzo, Jim Thompson, and Dick Notmeyer surfed the distant waves of Pillar Point. With them was Matienzo's roommate's white-haired German Shepherd, Maverick, who was accustomed to swimming with his owner and Matienzo while they were surfing. The three surfers left Maverick on shore, but he swam out to them. Finding the conditions unsafe for the dog, Matienzo tied him up before rejoining the others. The riders had limited success that day as they surfed overhead peaks about 400m from shore, just along the rocks that are visible from shore; they deemed the bigger outside waves too dangerous. The surfers named the location after Maverick, who seemed to have gotten the most pleasure from the experience.

Food Recommendations - Game pie, proscuitto with figs, roast lamb with salsa verde.
