Mayhem Wines is a fun collaboration between two established wine industry siblings - Terry Meyer Stone of Anarchist Mountain Vineyards and her brother JAK Meyer of Meyer Family Vineyards, along with their respective spouses Andrew Stone and Janice Stevens. The portfolio consists of aromatic white varietals and Bordeaux red varietals. We source our grapes from our home vineyards and established growers of the Okanagan, with an eye for detail in the vineyard and producing quality grapes in a sustainable manner.
The Pinot Blanc arrived on the crush pad at 23Brix after being handpicked at a vineyeard on the Naramata Bench. The juicy fruit was whole cluster pressed, cold-settled, and racked into two separate tanks for fermentation. Each tank was inoculated with a different yeast. After fermentation was complete the wine in each tank spent time on its fine lees. One tank was left to settle for three weeks, while the other tank went through a lees stirring once a week for those three weeks. Both tanks were then racked off that fine lees, married into one tank, settled and filtered before spring bottling.
The vibrant nose reveals pear, apricot, lemon zest citrus, red apples and elderflower. There is the slight hint of savoury lees resulting from the sur lees time post-ferment. This sur lees characteristic also shows on the palate in the rich texture and round soft body. The palate mirrors the nose with pear, and citrus zest with a touch of tropical fruit.
