WINEMAKING / TASTING NOTES
During a barrel tasting event in January 2012, the idea of putting together The Mammatus was born. Christine and I went to work and for the next 5-6 months we tried different blends with different styles in mind. We finally settled on the idea of a beyond complex white wine that had the big notes of a full-bodied dry red.

The main crux of this wine is longer than the standard barrel aging of white wine.  Many barrel-aged white wines never cross the one-year mark for a variety of reasons, the overuse of micro-oxidation being a primary reason.  But if you manage the barrels properly, you can pull it off.

This wine is a barrel fermented and aged blend of Vignoles, LaCrescent, and Traminette.  The oak is prevalent and well-rounded and fully integrated into the fruit flavors of the wine.  The finish is lingering, long, and super smooth on the finish.  Just a deliciously smooth wine
