2018 Brecon Feral Underclass

It's all in a name. Brecon loves how it rolls off the tongue and how it oh so fits on a number of levels, even if the acronym is accidentally risque. Firstly it was coined during some civil unrest and was one of the first terms in the UK to go viral. We do let the wild yeast run amok and it's somewhat riotous on the tongue. Secondly we use two varieties traditionally excluded from the nobel variety club. Petite Sirah and Zinfandel. When properly nurtured in Paso Robles they can truly be world class. Finally put one proverbial finger up at the conventions of a class system by bottling it in our single vineyard reserve program. By the way, it’s a big structured cooler climate Petite Sirah/Zinfandel blend with bags of character and layers of hidden pepper and spice.. Full disclosure, none of our team was involved in said riots!

Rolph vineyard is a superlative dry grown vineyard, above Adelaida Road, run by a detail oriented statistician. Brecon was so impressed by the Petite Sirah on this property that we negotiated to graft over some Port varietals to Petite just so we could actually get some. To sweeten the deal, we agreed to take a little  Zinfandel which adds the spice to this wines structure and jamminess.
