Description

Newfound Wines, a small family owned winery located in the Sierra Foothills was established in 2016 and is the very essence of ‘New California’.  Matt and Audra were intent on intent on producing wine in the most sustainable way possible and tore out the existing vineyard that they purchased.  Amongst the mesaures they took was to enlist the help of 200 goats to graze the hillsides and to naturally compost the site, as well as creating a fire safe zone by lifting the densely forested canopy and cover cropped with a recipe of legumes, clovers and nitrogen fixing green manures.


Newfound has come to define Matt & Audra’s farming dream to become first generation grape growers and wine producers while also supporting several grape growers who they source additional grapes from who share their same set of convictions.


Each component of the Gravels blend was fermented entirely with whole clusters. The grapes were trodden by foot upon arrival at the winery then placed in open top tanks where fermentation took place with natural yeasts. Very little SO2 was used just prior to bottling.


The wine is a beguiling mix of savoury herbs, chalk, rose water and tart raspberry. The palate is linear and assertive with distinct tannin yet elegant framework.

Les Charmes de Kirwan is the second wine of 3rd Growth Château Margaux and, like it's more grown up sybling, has benefitted from the massive investment program in both the winery and the vineyard in recent years.  It is generally made with the younger vines on the property but receives exactly the same care and attention as the wine.
