James Erskine has embarked on a journey that could have many endings. A proponent of as close to natural winemaking and viticulture as possible, James understands the risks and rewards that come with ‘high risk’ winemaking. All of the vineyards are managed by Fiona Wood and starting in 2015 all of the vineyards are 100% certified organic. Her viticultural belief is centered around minimal touching of the earth with many of the vineyards farmed
biodynamically and all dry farmed. In the cellar all ferments are wild and each vineyard’s wine is made without the addition of yeasts, enzymes, fining agents, acid, or tannins. None of the wines are filtered or fined and only sulfur is added post-ML on some of the wines with many bottled ‘sans soufre.’
James is crafting wines with incredible vitality, sex appeal, and dangerous drinkability. These wines reflect place, soul, funk, passion, and this it is declared a new zeitgeist! He picks on acids first and foremost, when the acid makes the transition away from hard-edged and softens a touch is the day to pick. He is looking for a welcoming comfort in the fruit and not tight fruit, as his use of stems during fermentation will add more tension. He never
utilizes pumpovers or punchdowns but rather letting the fruit sit gently on the stems and skins.
