2020 Luminaria Blanc des Blancs - Symmetria

The Symmetria Estate: 

- Symmetria is the type of gem one always hopes to stumble upon. A husband and wife team with incredible talent, access to incredible vineyards, insatiable curiosity, high expectations, and wild dreams.  Founded in 2015 by Mauricio and his wife Deniesse, the strength of these wines comes both from Mauricio's extensive background in oenology, as well as access to, and first pick of, some of the oldest remaining and most esteemed vineyard sites in Valle de Guadalupe. The principle source for their wines are vineyards originally planted by Russian immigrants in the early 1900's. Mauricio is the vineyard manager for these hallowed parcels and has, as part of his compensation, the right to have the first pick from the vineyards each vintage.

- 60% of the wines are made from their estate grapes.

- Their 'Syrah', a blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Malbec, is made in a 'natural' style. Fermented with native yeasts and minimal sulfites added.

- Their approach to wine making is to maintain a healthy environment for their vineyards, their family and their customers. To this end, they farm organic, make no corrections to pressed juice, and add compost to their soils annually from local sources constantly enriching the soils from which their grapes are derived.
