PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Donkey & Goat founders Jared & Tracey Rodgers Brandt were proponents of natural winemaking long before it was fashionable. After spending a year in the Rhône Valley working with winemaker and natural wine pioneer Éric Texier, they were determined to bring the principles of natural winemaking stateside. Their Berkeley winery was born in 2004, and their wines have since become benchmarks for natural winemakers all over the world. Today, they have relationships with numerous organic and biodynamic growers and craft wines sourced from the Anderson Valley, Mendocino Ridge, and the "undiscovered" El Dorado appellation in the Sierra Foothills.

The 2019 "Eliza" is a blend of clairette, picpoul, vermentino, roussanne & grenache blanc sourced from the Barsotti Vineyard in the El Dorado AVA. Fermented without added yeasts, aged in oak barrels for 9 months, and crafted with minimal sulfites, Eliza's allure lies in her ability to show off each varietal’s character and complexity. On the nose, there are bright aromas of lemon zest, a touch of creamy sweetness, and notes of pear blossom. As soon as you take a sip, your palate begins a beautiful journey from the tip of your tongue where the acidity tingles your mouth awake to the weight of the creamy, round, and soft texture, which shows just a bit of oak influence. Finally, the flavors of lemon custard, stone fruits, pears, and hints of baking spice are captured on the roof of your mouth, riding a wave of saline-tinged acidity to the long and satisfying finish.
