Listan is produced from 100-year-old pie franco Misión vines grown at 2,400 ft elevation on sandy loam and granite soils in the mountains of Tecate, Mexico, right on the California border. Because the grapes are dry-farmed, yields are very low here. The grapes are de-stemmed and fermented without temperature control in 450 liter concrete tinajas. After fermentation, ½ of the cuvee goes to stainless steel vats, and the other half goes to used barrels for 3 months. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration and just 10 ppm of added sulfur. A light ruby in the glass and only 12.5% ABV, this is a supremely drinkable expression of the Mission grape with subtle floral tones and notes of peppery red fruits and a refreshing, briny acidity.
