Tectumque means "shelter" in Latin. This wine was initially going to be called "Inconnue" ("unknown" in French), but that name had already been trademarked. "Naming wines is becoming impossible," mentioned Manfred. "Everything has already been taken. Even, 'No Name!'" This is a blend of 38% Roussanne, 31% Petit Manseng, 18% Chardonnay, 9% Viognier and 4% Muscat. The vineyard components are 52% Cumulus Estate, 19% Eleven Confessions Estate, 18% Bien Nacido Vineyard and 11% The Third Twin Estate. It spent around 20 months aging in 9% concrete eggs, 4% amphora, 9% used barrels and 78% new French oak puncheons. Drink Date: 2020-2040.
