Outward, Valdiguié, 2021
SHELL CREEK VINEYARD | PASO ROBLES HIGHLANDS DISTRICT | CA
From rock-climbing to winemaking - Outward is an expression and extension of the newly engaged couple; Natalie Siddique and Ryan Pace. With an explorative approach
to life, the wines these two create embody freshness, evolution and wonder. With nature leading the way, the couple seek out coastal, small-lot, single vineyards.
Valdiguié is an old-school grape with roots in Southern France. In CA it was originally, mistakenly called Napa Gamay - it’s now making a respected resurgence and we are here for it!
TASTING NOTES: Light-bodied, fun and juicy. Inherently fruity with a wild side. Notes of Strawberry, Watermelon and Bubblegum. We recommend drinking this wine chilled.
