Story

The name Golden Ore is inspired by the vibrancy of the wine’s pale gold color and the rare mineral for which it is named. The fruit was sourced from a unique vineyard in Oakville, which lies on the base of the Mayacamas mountain range. The site’s gravelly soil provides excellent drainage to allow the vines to absorb essential nutrients deep into the ground, yielding wines of complexity and structure.

2021 was a textbook superb vintage, warm and sunny, offering the luxury of extended hang time, and allowing the grapes to achieve optimal ripeness. It will be a vintage remembered for low yields and intense, small berries packed full of flavor. These wines will be a collector’s favorite for several years to come.

Tasting Notes

The aromas radiate juicy apricot, lime zest, and Meyer lemon, with a touch of passion fruit and lychee. On the palate uncover layers of fresh white flowers, clementine, melon and stone fruit. The grapes were pressed whole cluster, then fermented and aged in barrels for an extended period of 18 months. The oak influence provides a slight richness that gives length to a round and mouthwatering finish. We are astounded by the versatility of this wine, as it compliments a meal beautifully, or can be enjoyed exceptionally on its own.
