Details

Populis White wabi-Sabi Living Wines Collective, organic Californian white wine, ripe, racy acidity. The Populis Wabi-Sabi white is a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Colombard– the grapes come from three sites. Both vineyards are farmed organically, but are not currently certified. Whole clusters were pressed directly. The juice was allowed to settle overnight and decanted off the grape solids. The juice fermented in a mixture of neutral French oak barrels and 12 hl polymer tanks. No sulphur or inoculation was made at this point and the fermentation was 100% indigenous. The wine was aged for 7 months sur lie - the mouthfeel is characterized by laser-like acidity, while the aromas and flavours strike a balance between greenness and riper opulence, resulting in a style that is uniquely Californian, yet with an old-world approach. The old-vines give this wine an additional dimension of depth and complexity.


Populis is the love child of three winemaking school friends, Diego Roig, Sam Baron, and Shaunt Oungoulian. Populis was born from the desire to make lighthearted, naturally made, extremely drinkable wines from exciting vineyard sites throughout California. They partner with farmers who grow organically, many of whom dry farm historic, old vine vineyards.
