From: USA, Sierra Foothills AVA
By: Hank Beckmeyer @ Clarine Farm
A Californian red from the farm of Hank Beckmeyer, a cheese-maker turner vine-grower who is passionate about farming philosophy and biodiversity. Sumu Kaw is light bodied, made from 100 per cent Syrah grapes growing at 2,600 metres above sea level on a ridge top surrounded by pine forest.
Hank Beckmeyer and his wife farm in the Sierra Nevada foothills, helped and hindered by goats, dogs cats and chickens. Hank is committed to producing wines biodynamically, suffering a minimal amount of interference to produce a natural product. The Syrah grapes for the Sum Kaw are manually harvested and fermented as bunches in open top vats and aged for fourteen months. Sumu Kaw is unfiltered and unfined.
