ABOUT THIS WINE
The Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre were harvested and fermented separately with different percentages of whole cluster. All of the components were pressed in the basket press and aged separately in neutral French oak until about a month before bottling. At that time, the final blend was made and Ravie rested in tank for about a month before being bottled unfined and unfiltered in July of 2022. The final blend is 55% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and 20% Mourvèdre - it is about 80% whole cluster in total.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Winemaker, Alice Anderson, spent two years working in the Northern Rhône where the seamless connection between farming and winemaking became her ethos. After returning to Santa Barbara County, Alice worked for and was influenced by some of the region’s brightest winemaking lights. She’s taken those experiences and influences to her brand called Âmevive Wine.
Âmevive is a small winery and vineyard based in Santa Barbara County. Alice Anderson and her partner farm a historic 10-acre vineyard in Los Olivos District AVA, home to Syrah, Mourvedre, and Marsanne planted in 1971. They farm with the environment in mind using biodynamic and regenerative organic practices. They actively rotate chickens, sheep, and ducks throughout the vineyard, and are completing their 3rd year of no till. They add nothing but occasionally minimal sulfur to the wines and they are always unfined, unfiltered, and made with intention. Alice likes to say that she "makes natural wines for the classic palette." She is extremely passionate about the natural world, keeping the wild wild, and making tasty wines that are good for both the planet and our bodies!
