Scholium Project Blowout 2015
Winemaker Abe Schoener is a leader in California’s natural-wine avant-garde. But his wildly experimental streak took a surprising turn with Scholium Project 2015 Blowout ($22), which is made by mechanically injecting carbonation into a blend of Lourreiro, Grüner Veltliner, and Verdelho. Schoener starts with serious juice—from the Lost Slough vineyard in the cool Sacramento River Delta, the source for Scholium cult favorites such as the Prince in His Caves. Then, after a brisk fermentation, he zaps it with CO2 and presto: heady aromas and flavors of musky cantaloupe, peach, and white flowers
