    Winemaker Notes

    The Fog Monster Chenin Blanc is, as Andrea Mullineux puts it, “an inside-out skin fermentation.” Grapes for the 2013 Chenin Blanc were sourced from the own-rooted, dry-farmed Story Vineyard planted in the decomposed granite soils of the Sierra Foothills in Amador County. Fruit is transferred whole cluster into T-Bins with a blanket of dry ice and then covered and given a 2 week carbonic maceration. After 2 weeks the bins were foot trodden and then pressed to concrete egg tanks to complete fermentation and then matured in those same eggs for 12 months. The wine has a deep orange/gold color due to the skin contact, and an intense nose of white fruit and spice. The palate is fresh and surprisingly tight and long.

    Fog Monster, California
    Fog Monster  Winery Image

    Fog Monster Wines is a passion project of Andrea Mullineux, a fantastic winemaker known for her wonderful wines in the Swartland region of South Africa. The Fog Monster is an exploration of Andrea’s home state; California. These super small production wines consist each vintage of two wines; a ‘heritage’ red blend from the Bedrock Vineyard every vintage and then a secondary wine which changes each year where Andrea can explore something new. Andrea, originally from California, and her husband Chris have been sourcing fruit from unique vineyards in various California winegrowing areas in order to explore the possibilities of the land and different winemaking styles. These vineyards are exposed to the interesting climatic conditions, particularly the fog rolling in from the Pacific Ocean. The wines are esoteric in nature, beautifully balanced, and a true reflection of the climatic influence in this region.
