Ovum Off The Grid Riesling 2017
With just 444 cases produced, this wine may not be around long and it's one that Ovum thinks might be their best...ever. Alluvial galet soils at an elevation of 1,500 feet give this wine undeniable tension with a flinty, quince-like finish.
Each Ovum wine is made in the exact same way. Their low intervention production method is a commitment to letting each vintage and vineyard come through, for better or worse. Native ferments, no subtractions or additions, except for small amounts of SO2 - and extended lees contact for 8-9 months, which lends textural complexity. All of this is done in neutral barrels of acacia and oak, as well as cement egg. The nuances and subtleties of the resulting wines are owed exclusively to the terroir from whence they came.
