New Nectar on The Block!
Although the recent snow storms make it feel otherwise, winter is almost in the rearview here in Paso Robles! Spring has been patiently waiting to warm us all up. The honey bees have emerged from their hives as the almond trees blossom, providing the very first nectar of the new growing season. Wildflowers will be up next, dotting our vibrant green hills with hues of yellow, orange, blue and purple. Their sweet song will call the hummingbirds and orioles, and soon our hills will be full of birdsong and buzzing bees.
It’s the perfect time to introduce a wine to you that we have been working on for the better part of two years. From the moment we walked the vineyard back in the spring and summer of 2021, we knew that this chardonnay was special. It was going to be a bridge between the new and old world and it was exciting. Without further ado, we introduce to you our newest member of the Copia line-up: Amrit.
Amrit is a sanskrit word that means "immortality.” In ancient Indian texts, it is synonymous with elixir, ambrosia or a divine nectar. Hailing from the iconic Bien Nacido Vineyard, Amrit is a boundary-breaking wine that lands somewhere in between a Chablis and a California chardonnay.
The seasons come and they go, but we are so very fortunate to be able to bottle them away to enjoy and to remember. The glass is brimming with orange blossom, lemon curd, pink pearl apple and flint and the palate is full of vibrant, mouthwatering acidity. Usher in spring with this beautiful Bien Nacido chardonnay. You’ll want to add it to your cellar while it is still available!
