Maggie Harrison was assistant winemaker to Manfred Krankl of Sine Qua Non for eight years before moving to Oregon to take over the winemaking position at Antica Terra. Started in 2004 with an inaugural release of 150 cases, Lillian represents Maggie’s personal project and reflects everything that she learned during her time at Sine Qua Non. What Maggie tries to capture with her wine is a certain sense of balance; a particular sensation of restraint. For a complete lack of a better word…a prettiness.She is making wines that are at once voluptuous, powerful and rich without ever being overbearing. Wines with a strong structure, but with a fine-ness and a lushness and a purity that for us is the embodiment of true femininity The fruit for her Syrah is sourced from White Hawk Vineyard in Santa Barbara County, Bien Nacido Vineyard in Santa Maria Valley and Stolpman Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley. The wines are fermented with native yeasts in small, open top fermenters, siphoned, warm into barrel without the use of pumps and are in barrel for 24 - 36 months before being bottled without fining or filtration.
