It all started with the wine – a passion to produce single varietals that are vibrant and fresh, from carefully sourced vineyard sites. The inspiration was found in the truth that wine is a perfect reflection of time & place, the climate & season, the site & study, and that moment you share a bottle with friends & family. time 4:58:09pm | 2016-07-13 | wednesday. place: stono river | johns island | south carolina 32.778144° N , -80.094260° W. Artwork: john duckworth | “I was in the right place at the right time – standing knee deep in the pluff mudd as a summer storm was rolling over opposite shore of the Stono River throwing huge lightning bolts and thunder, while the sun was still breaking through the clouds behind me to light up the marsh in the foreground.” Vineyard notes, 3-year old, red ferrus, loamy soils with small deposits of clay. Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: “Whole cluster pressed, stainless steel fermented and aged, indigenous primary and secondary fermentation. Pale straw in color. Rich floral nose of gardenia, lemon and lime citrus peel, and peach blossoms. Background notes of pine and petrol. Bright, fresh flavors of green apple and lime. Finishes medium in length, with citrus peel and a touch of salinity. James Whetstone, Winemaker.
