  • 2016 Aberrant Confero Pinot Noir
    • While a scientific approach and “winemaking by numbers” can make correct, sound wines they often end up lacking any edge or excitement- stripped of character by using shortcuts via the subtraction of, or conversely, the addition of any number of available fixes - for the sake of the saving the wine from itself! Aberrant Cellars’ approach is quite different.  Our single greatest emphasis is the quality of fruit prior to its temporary confines within a fermentation vessel (of which we use a variety of sizes, shapes, and types).  At harvest, a rigorous selection of clusters are made while still on the vine, and again on the sorting line at the winery ensuring only the most pristine clusters make their way into the fermenters.  These “hands-on” steps, combined with 6 months of maniacal, quality-minded farming throughout the season, allow for much of the wine to be made in the vineyard.  Such practices-though costly and a whole lotta work - are the only real secret for wines which ultimately have the potential to be profound... an aspiration we hold above all else.
  • 2017 LÜK Chardonnay
  • Havlin Vineyard: Chardonnay
    • All of the windblown Havlin vineyard is dry farmed.
    • Clone of 76, planted in 2011.
    • East facing slope (7-percent), elevation approximately 375 feet. Our portion comes from the west block, where soils are slightly stonier.
    • Fast draining sedimentary soils, predominantly Chehulpum in this block, overlay is a vein of Ironstone surrounding the vineyard.
    • Though the tendency for all of Havlin Vineyard is for late ripening, we found the Chardonnay’s flavors to be fully developed, while potential alcohols were still well under 13 percent, and so chose to harvest with vibrancy.
    • Signature characteristics of this site:
      •  Wines’ purity of fruit.
      • Consistent mineral presence from the Ironstone bedrock.​
  • 2016 LÜK Gamay Noir
    • All of the windblown Havlin Vineyard is dry farmed.
    • SE facing slope (5-percent), elevation approximately 350 feet. Our portion comes from the upper reaches of the block, where soils are shallowest and yields are lowest.
    • Suitcase clone of 352, propagated from cuttings at Seven Springs vineyard. Planted in 2011.
    • Fast draining sedimentary soils of Willakenzie and Chehulpum overlay a vein of Ironstone surrounding the vineyard.
    • Very late ripening; typically, our last block of fruit harvested for the season. And, we’ve never achieved more than 22.5 Brix.
    • Signature characteristics of this windblown vineyard.
      • Wines’ purity of fruit.
      • Consistent mineral presence from the Ironstone bedrock.
