  • Story

    Panda juice is your jumanji. The skin-contact Sauvignon Blanc is from the ‘Hillside Vineyard’ in Talmage, right above the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas in Mendocino County. These head-trained vines were planted on loam in the 1980s. The ‘Hillside Vineyard’ is CCOF certified organic and makes up almost half of the Panda Juice blend. The Sauvignon Blanc fermented on the skins for three weeks to extract phenolics that bring a thrilling arsenal of flavors and a slight ‘orange’ or ‘amber’ tint. The Roussane, also skin-fermented, is from the ‘Morrine Vineyard’ in the High Valley AVA, which adds saline mineral complexity and fragrance. The ‘Deanda Vineyard’ Chenin Blanc brings lively acidity and freshness, while Wine Fellas benchmark ‘Open Hand Ranch’ Chardonnay exuberates richness. A minuscule portion of Muscat from ‘Davis Drive Vineyard’ was essential to ushering in the signature floral terpenes.

  • NOTES

    Welcome to the jungle. You're never quite sure where you are. Apricots, pears, and orange blossoms turn into a high-frequency citrus verve with calcareous mineral liftoff. It's mouthwatering and quenching, like nothing you've ever tasted before. Flirtatious, flinty, and nutty, it's crunchy and winning. The Panda Juice is an oenophile's geeky treasure.
