Keep it natural, baby.
Heroine 2018, is sourced entirely from Escolle vineyard in the northern stretch of the Santa Lucia Highlands. Planted in 2008. Sourced from Block 5, 6 and 7, comprising Clone 17 and Hyde on 101-14 and ‘Freedom’ rootstocks. This vineyard embodies what Heroine is all about, both elegance and power. The vineyard retains a remarkable amount of acid yet balance by the concentration of the Santa Lucia sun. 100% is native yeast fermented in neutral French Oak barriquee from 4 to 12 year old barrels. 80% malolactic, 7 months on the lees in barrel before another 3 months in bottle before release. 402 Cases Produced.
Our first vintage was 90 cases of Chardonnay in neutral oak barrels. We named the wine Heroine to capture its grace and elegance, while still reflecting the powerful terroir of California, and we loved the idea of putting a true American art form – comic book art – on the label of our American wine. When it all sold in 6 weeks, we realized we might have more than just a side project on our hands—this brand was becoming a real business.
We named our winery Iconic because we aspire to establish a new benchmark for California wine: wine that is authentically Californian but more restrained than the “blockbuster” wines that became the norm in the 1990’s.
