As Ovid continues their exploration of the vast diversity that California has to offer, they've been drawn to the cooler climates for producing unique, vibrant Whites. This 2017 Experiment White offers freshness and clean delineation that immediately engages your palate. Notes of lemon zest and brioche fill the glass with richness and lively acidity.
Ovid's organically farmed, 15-acre vineyard is perched on a secluded mountaintop at 1,400 ft. elevation in the western reaches of the Pritchard Hill geography of Napa Valley. Here, they farm rocky red, volcanic soils to capture a true sense of place and produce age-worthy wines composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. They ferment only with native yeasts and bottle their wines without fining or filtering. Their winemaker since 2006, Austin Peterson, combines his site-specific experience with a sense of experimentation, embracing a tension between classical and cutting-edge winemaking methods
