Winestyr Review

There are two distinct personalities to this wine. The first is a slightly reductive, flinty and mineral, palate with a zesty mouthfeel. The second is more bombastic, tropical fruited and juicy with crème fraîche and chive on the finish. Drink it on its own or with food, there is real pleasure to be had no matter the pairing.

What We Love

  • Rorick Heritage Vineyard sourcing
  • Reimagining of a classic style
  • Acclaimed winemaker

This is for you, your friends, your mother, or anyone else who claims they don't like Chardonnay

Experience

John Lockwood started in the California wine industry in 2004 working at Heron Lake vineyard. He went on to work harvests at Littorai, Bodega Melipal in Argentina, and Failla Wines. He started Enfield Wine Co. in 2010 as small side-project while still working at Failla, and in 2013 Enfield became a full time project. Driven by soil first, Enfield seeks out vineyards that possess a distinct and powerful sense of place – across region, grape variety, and vine age. Working with small vineyards and independent growers, every step of the process is guided by the intent to maximize this character of terroir. Grapes are harvested for balance and the wines are all given the chance to ferment naturally. The wines have been met with serious critical acclaim and we're excited to have them in our portfolio.
