Martha Stouman, Post Flirtation, California, USA
One-woman winemaking and grape growing project based in Northern California. Martha seeks to express wines that represent her land with purity and precision. She has chosen to work with sun-loving grapes: either those historic to California Viticulture, or those that flourish and maintain elegance in California’s warmth, such as Carignan, Zinfandel, and Nero d’Avola, whilst utilising natural, traditional winemaking practices she learned while apprenticing in Italy and Southern France (Didier Barral). And most importantly, to truly respect her Californian roots, she ensures her vineyards are farmed in such a way that healthy ecosystems are created and maintained.
Notes of ripe blackberry and dried plum balance more herbaceous characteristics of pine and rosemary; still a fruit forward, approachable wine that has energy and verve.
