TASTE

PRODUCER
Don’t be fooled by Joel Gott’s casual, easy-going exterior. This fifth- generation West Coast winemaker and restaurateur has remarkable energy and flair when it comes to sourcing and blending, be it the fruit for his ridiculously good-value, expressive wines or indeed the ingredients in the epic fish tacos served at his Gott’s Roadside restaurants. Regretful though we may be that we cannot import the latter, getting access to his wines is fair compensation. The labels reflect the contents: stylish modern classics, restrained and yet with a typical Californian generosity. Joel’s wife Sarah is his director of winemaking, having previously risen to be head winemaker at Joseph Phelps. With this combined pedigree, the resulting wines punch well above their weight.

VINEYARD
Within California, the ocean winds in Monterey best mirror conditions in France’s Rhône Valley, where wind-stressed vines produce fewer clusters with more concentrated flavours, making for spicy, lush, food- friendly wines. Because of these conditions, the Grenache is sourced in large part from Monterey, while Syrah is sourced from Knights Valley, which adds a layer of white pepper spice.

WINERY
The grapes were hand-sorted and destemmed, and the wine fermented at fairly warm temperatures in stainless steel tanks. The various lots were pressed to French oak barriques, with sixty-five percent new wood, for ten months’ ageing.
