Marsanne / Syrah / Mourvèdre

Los Olivos District, California

Âmevive is a small winery and vineyard based in Santa Barbara County. Alice Anderson and her partner farm a historic 10-acre vineyard in Los Olivos District AVA home to Syrah, Mourvedre, and Marsanne planted in 1971. They farm with the environment in mind using biodynamic and regenerative organic practices. They actively rotate chickens, sheep, and ducks throughout the vineyard, and are completing their 3rd year of no till. Nothing is added, but occasionally minimal sulfur, and they are always unfined, unfiltered, and made with intention. They make natural wines for the classic palette.

Peripherie was harvested on a single morning. The ratio of each grape is not a science, it directly correlates to the number of vines in each row working up the western side of the property.  The Marsanne, Syrah, and Mourvedre were harvested into the same picking bins and brought to the cellar to be destemmed into open top barrels. After its native fermentation commenced, this wine was made with minimal extraction with gentle love touches and pour overs. Peripherie was sent to press after a little more than 2 weeks on its skins. This wine aged for 6 months ⅓  in stainless and 3/4 in neutral French oak before bottling unfined and unfiltered in March of 2022.
