SAFE SHIPPING TIP: Summer weather is challenging for safely shipping natural wine. We strongly prefer a business address where an adult is available to sign on the first delivery attempt which avoids our unfiltered wines riding around on a hot truck all day.
Making wine is the most humbling and magical of endeavors. Wines provide a voice for the connection between the earth, the vine and the elements. Eliza is the voice for Barsotti Vineyards, as told through the many varietals we planted there in 2010 with the legendary Ron Mansfield.
Tasting Note: It’s a feminine and earthy nose shown off by beautiful floral notes of honeysuckle, jasmine, lemongrass oolong tea, and a whiff of sage. This wine is texturally complex as you start to recognize the components of each varietal. Fruitiness of white peaches, apricots and golden delicious apples. It has a bit of muscle that we think you’ll love, influenced by its salinity and with nutty notes of cashew, marzipan.
The 2016 Eliza was celebrated in Wine & Spirits Magazine with 93pts and a Top 100 Wine for 2018!
