THE WINE: Handcrafted in small batches from locally sourced, organic lavender flowers and lemons—not grapes.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: A soft rosé blush and an assertive floral nose with an implied sweetness.
TASTING NOTES: "Gourmet-level gift" (Michelin Guide) Crisp and dry with a bright mouth-feel, refreshing acidity, and an elegant clarity of expression with hints of citrus, juniper, and aniseed.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Our lavender wine pairs well with savory, salty, and sweet entrées. It’s a summer celebratory wine and a spirited apéritif, dessert, or brunch partner. "L" is also a dynamic ingredient in wine cocktails made with mezcal, tequila, rum, gin, vodka, absinthe, and various liqueurs. Serve chilled in a champagne flute.
THE WINEMAKING PROCESS: Florification on lees in pressurized unitanks, without filtration. Florification (derived from flor-, the Latin root for flower) is a term for flower winemaking akin to vinification, which refers to the production of grape wine from fruit selection to fermentation to bottling. Lees are the yeast and other natural elements that settle at the bottom of the tank during the fermentation process. Florification on lees is an aging technique that allows the wine to mature on the lees, without racking, until bottling. This contributes to our flower wine's freshness and complexity.
