Field Recordings ''Skins'' White Blend 2020 - Central Coast, CA
Varietals: 50% Chenin Blanc, 35% Riesling, and 15% Pinot Gris
This wine combines aromas and flavors of earth, dried dirt, and rustic spices. Its note of oxidation should pair it well with slow-cooked ham hocks over a bed of kale.
Field Recordings is 35-year old winemaker Andrew Jones’ personal catalog of the people and places he values most. Spending his days as a vine nursery fieldman planning and planting vineyards for farmers all over California, Andrew is sometimes offered small lots of their best fruit on the side. Having stood in just about every vineyard on the Central Coast, he has a keen eye for diamonds in the rough: sites that are unknown or under-appreciated but hold enormous untapped potential. As friendships are made and opportunities are embraced, Andrew produces small quantities of soulful wine from these unusual, quiet vineyards.
