Donkey & Goat Twinkle Mourvèdre El Dorado 2020
Jared and Tracey Brandt made the shift from gaming tech to winemaking at the turn of the millenium. They began with an apprenticeship under legendary Rhône natural winemaker Eric Texier. Their French adventure also brought the winery its name: recalling how one of Eric’s neighbors in France had trained a donkey to help keep unwanted vegetation at bay, Jared had been intrigued to know why he also had a goat. It was explained that goats, due to their calm temperament, help placate other animals. Similar to this synergy, Tracey was the calming “goat” to Jared’s stubborn “donkey”.
This is a beautiful rendition of a darker Rosé wine. Twinkle made its debut in 2015, after a particularly light bodied Mourvèdre inspired its creation. 2020 is just as nervy and lively as the past five vintages. Perfect for pool or patio, we always recommend drinking this beautiful wine at a chilled, white wine temperature. EXTREMELY hands-off winemaking. EXTREMELY good.
Very limited supply.
