Salinia "Sun Hawk Farms" Red Field Blend consists of ten red and white biodynamically farmed varietals that are simultaneously harvested and co-fermented whole cluster, with foot-treading occurring twice daily. Planted 15 years ago, by John Schaeffer and Nancy Hensley who own and operate Sun Hawk Farms--a biodynamic farm and homestead--the vines reside in soils of goldridge, granite and loam. Wholly committed to both "living off the grid" and to regenerative farming, the couple writes: "It is the biodiversity of the farm, organized so that the waste of one part of the farm becomes the energy for another, that results in an increase in the farm's capacity for self-renewal and ultimately makes the farm sustainable." And since Kelley's subscribes to the old world/old school winemaking practice of "leaving shit alone", it is imperative that his wine be made in the vineyard. The grapes--Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Counoise, Cabernet Sauvignon, Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Picpoul and Muscat-- are not only grown together, but they're harvested at the same time, then fermented whole cluster with foot-treading twice daily. The wine is finally aged for 18 months in 500-liter acacia barrels. The white varietals add a stunning floral, stone fruit element to the already-expressive nose (violets, red fruit, bacon fat).
