Try It out! 2020 offers a persistent, delightful bubble soothes the palate with whispers of lemon and orange blossom. Bone dry yet creamy on the nose, this 8% ABV natural wine spritzer boldly goes where no spritzer has gone before. Try It Out!
You know the saying? When life gives you Meyer lemons, a few tons of Orange Muscat grapes and a serendipitous connection with a local distiller – make a wine spritzer!
This first iteration of Try It Out! created a place in their portfolio they didn't know they needed. This radically naked spritzer evokes sparkling blue pools swirling with bougainvillea petals and orange blossoms. It makes them want to go skinny dipping and wink at strangers. Most of all, their spritzer offers a boldly subtle reminder that delicious libations are meant to be shared.
As climate change foists difficult vintages upon us, they recognize a need to find creative ways to insulate our business from pressure of fires, drought and late frost. The base grapes in our spritzer come from regions like Lodi that harvest early (before threat of fire), are traditionally less expensive, and have little disease pressure.
Unlike Martha's wines that are carefully crafted to tell the story of a particular vineyard or county, Try it Out! seeks to capture a California state of mind. Meyer lemons (a regular lemon crossed with a mandarin orange) are common backyard trees here. Though orange blossom water was first distilled in the Middle East, it quickly found favor in Sicily. As with all of Martha's wines, there's a nod to her formative time in Sicily through a quintessentially California lens.
