Adobe-licious

People who live in clay houses shouldn't throw … uh … what do you think? Water balloons?

Enclosed in this box you will find most of what you asked be returned to you. Here are your books, your Blu-rays, your cheap-o earphones, and that stupid robot vacuum cleaner. The dental floss you insisted I return because “you paid for it” is here. Also, while I’m not entirely certain why it’s so important I give you this specific towel, but here you go. I washed it, though, just to let you know. I hope that didn’t ruin whatever weird thing you’ve got going on with it. No, wait, I hope it did, actually.

Now then, on to the little matter of the Clayhouse wines you wanted back. Mainly, why that won’t be happening.

You see, Brad, I was pretty upset after chasing you and.. Oh, what was her name? Tramp? Hussy? The Collagen Experiment Gone Awry? Whatever. Basically, it wasn’t pleasant getting the two of you out of our bedroom and apartment. It took me a minute to control my thoughts and emotions, particularly the ones that told me I should burn all your stuff in the backyard immediately.

So, I decided to have a glass of wine, your 2012 Clayhouse Garnacha Blanca to be exact. The flavors of green pear, citrus, and cherimoya had a very calming effect on me, even as I read through the emails in your “Secret Emails” folder detailing just how long you’d been cheating on me. I nearly spit a whole mouthful of crisp, clean wine on the screen when I found the naughty photos you’d been sending her. Also, for your information, “Bradisrad27” is not a very secure password.

It wasn’t until I opened a bottle of the 2012 Clayhouse Garnacha Blanca, though, that I finally came to terms with everything. Maybe it was the light straw color and green hue, I don’t know, but I really found myself at peace when I posted those pictures I found to every single social media site I could sign up for.

Let’s just call that bottle of 2012 Clayhouse Garnacha Blanca an Asshat Tax, shall we, Brad? Think of it as the cost of doing business. But to show you there are truly no hard feelings, I’ve also thrown in the unused portions of the box of feminine hygiene products you bought when you purchased your precious floss. They’re technically yours, anyway.

Features

2012 Casa de Arcilla Garnacha Blanca, Paso Robles 750ml 6-Pack

This 2012 Garnacha Blanca is a bright light straw color with a green hue. Aromas are of sweet bay, green cardamom, lime zest, and fresh fennel root. Flavors are of green pear, citrus, and cherimoya. The finished wine is zesty and packed with a savory flavor unique to Garnacha Blanca. This is a crisp yet complex wine that is a perfect match for shellfish (especially mussels) and Spanish cheeses.

Casa de Arcilla produces Spanish varietals from Paso Robles Red Cedar Vineyard. Casa de Arcilla means, literally, “House of Clay” in Spanish...the name honors the nineteenth-century adobe home on the vineyard property.

In 2012 the summer growing season was even and relatively mild in Paso Robles. Vine yields were in balance and produced well-rounded wines with expressive fruit flavors. The grapes for this wine were hand-picked early in the morning. At the winery, all the grapes were whole-cluster pressed, and the juice was cold settled for two days before racking off the heavy lees prior to fermentation.

Fermentation was in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks (49-53 degrees F), to keep fermentation rates slow, preserving aromatics. This wine did not go through malolactic fermentation. It was racked off the fermentation lees immediately to preserve fresh character in the wine.

Winery Details

Middleton Family Wines

Owner:
Rick Middleton
Location:
Paso Robles and Central Coast, CA

Our family has been working the land since 1898, when we started a lumber business in Aberdeen, on the coast of Washington State. We began with lumber and forestry, and have thoughtfully and gradually expanded our family business to include table grapes, wine grapes, and wine. Today our businesses are at home in Hoquiam (Washington – next door to Aberdeen), Walla Walla (Washington), Delano (California), and Paso Robles (California).

Because we’ve had four generations in the family business, we’re interested in building things that will last, for the fifth, sixth, seventh generations, and beyond.  Our wine business includes three wineries: Cadaretta (Walla Walla Valley and Columbia Valley), Clayhouse (Paso Robles and Central Coast), and Buried Cane (Washington State).

The Clayhouse label and brand celebrate a historic home at our estate vineyard near Paso Robles. That 150-year-old adobe structure – the Clayhouse itself – still reminds us of the time when grapes were first planted in this area. The Clayhouse, which we’ve carefully restored, is really the ideal symbol for our vineyard and winery. After all, like the adobe, our wines are created from the earth, cultivated by hand, and nurtured by family traditions.

For the Middleton family, those traditions and deep passion for agricultural businesses go back more than four generations.

Today, Clayhouse Wines extend that proud family legacy with a selection of exceptional wines, all crafted by hand in a refined, elegant style that reflects the unique character of Paso Robles and the depth of flavor that the Central Coast imparts.
