Product Notes

Lithic wine, crafted in the artisanal vineyards of California, encapsulates an elegant fusion of minerals and fruit. This handcrafted wine is lauded for its nuanced complexity and intriguing notes of ripe berries, layered with delicate undertones of earth and stone. The name ‘Lithic’ is a homage to the unique mixture of gravel, schist, and shale found in the soils of their vineyards. Each bottle of Lithic wine imbues a sense of terroir, offering a discerning palate a unique, sophisticated taste experience. It's a wonderfully enticing choice for wine aficionados with a taste for the rich, the robust, and the remarkable.

Tasting Notes

The 2019 Lithic is deeply perfumed, with heady aromatics of lavender, boysenberry, strawberries, orange blossom, Darjeeling tea, leather, rose petal, and baking spices. The gorgeous, silky entry, opens to delicious flavours of red and purple fruits, clove, pot pourri, cinnamon stick, with a persistent to the ethereal, long finish.

About the Winery

Keplinger

Situated amidst the verdant rolling hills of California’s Napa Valley, Keplinger Winery is truly a standout gem in the winemaking world. Founded by Helen Keplinger, a luminous star in a male-dominated industry, this winery is lauded for its transcendent single-vineyard wines, unyielding dedication to perfection and intimate, family-run ethos.

Having started her journey as a winegrower in Spain, Helen returned to her homeland armed with an enduring passion for wine, a spirit for adventure, till she found her home in the vineyards of Napa Valley.

Recognised by the Wine Enthusiast magazine as the 'Winemaker of the Year' in 2012, Helen has crafted an array of wines that put a unique twist on the timeless traditions of winemaking. The wines are a delightful testament to her talent, characterised by their distinct mineral profile, intensity of flavours, and her ambitious pursuit of perfection and elegance in every bottle.

The wine list at Keplinger is robust, featuring an assortment of Grenache, Syrah, and other red-blended wines, sourced from varietal vineyards across Napa Valley and beyond. These bottlings, much like the winemaker, possess a boldness and complexity that can only be achieved through a combination of discipline, passion and unrelenting commitment to quality, allowing them to hold their own against the offerings of larger, commercial wineries.

In addition to their traditional pursuits, Keplinger Winery prides itself on its commitment to sustainable farming techniques and processes. Their wines embody the harmony of nature and precision, evoking the beauty of the land and the years of labour infused into the vineyards.

Helen’s endeavours have not gone unnoticed, with numerous recognitions to her name, she is redefining the winemaking landscape. Keplinger Winery is an embodiment of such passion, talent and spirit, where each bottle carries with it a story of perseverance, commitment and the relentless pursuit of perfection this winery holds dear.
