Iruai En Cavale Zinfandel 2020
Iruai Winery (“ear-oo-eye") was started in 2013 by Chad and Michelle Westbrook Hinds in Berkeley, CA as a gypsy natural wine project, before laying down roots in the mythical Shasta-Cascade mountains of Siskiyou County, California. They are exploring avant garde vineyard planting and rehabilitation techniques using the permaculture methods laid out by Masanobu Fukuoka.
These are fresh and delicious wines. The fruit is all sourced from organic vineyards and the winemaking is decidedly low-intervention, yielding in wines that are alive.
