This is the inaugural release of Statera’s solera program! Multa IV is a four year solera, in which wine is added every year to the same barrels. This release is four vintages from 2016-2019. Only one barrel will be released in a year, meaning only 276 bottles of this wine is made in a year, so we are lucky to have gotten the few we did! Salty and slightly nutty with a hint of toasted sesame, green apple and graphite shavings combine to make a wine that’s as delicious as it is unforgettable.
We love it with… We'll let you know soon!
