Modern White is barrel fermented to add complexity and richness, but use neutral oak so the fruit takes center stage. This wine is blended from only their finest vineyards. Every vineyard is farmed biodynamically, organically, or sustainably. Qupé is committed to making affordable wines from responsibly farmed vineyards.
Qupé specialises in Rhône-style wines from the Bien Nacido Vineyard in Santa Maria, that is farmed sustainable, the Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard in the Edna Valley, farmed biodynamically, and the Ibarra-Young Vineyard in Los Olivos, farmed organically. Bob Lindquist's exacting standards and never-resting-on-laurels attitude, allows Qupé to continually be cutting edge and a benchmark other wineries aspire to be.
In the press
"Very peachy nose. Rich and full at the front of the palate, gentle, and the freshness is more from the lightly grainy texture than from acidity. Pear-grained."
