Spicy It Up with St. Mayhem White Wine with Habanero and Jalapeños
"Amazing Wines Aged on Wild Ingredients! We made great wine and kept going. We cut up Fresh Jalapeños and tossed them into the barrel during aging. OR we took some beautifully roasted coffee from our friends at Ritual Roasters and ground it fresh and put the wine through a cold coffee maker. Yes, for the traditionalist we have created Mayhem, but it tastes GREAT."
Complex, fresh and aromatic 2014 Lake County Sauvignon Blanc with a delicate balance of citrus and tropical notes, aged on fresh cut Jalapeño and Habanero peppers. The Sauvignon Blanc combines beautifully with the Jalapeño aromas and flavors, while the Habanero adds ripe flavors and balance to the back palate. Yes, this wine is a little spicy. Enjoy now while the heat is perfect.

The St. Mayhem Story:
It started 20 years ago with an opportunity to work for a craft brewer in Western Australia. Showing up in Australia with a degree from the University of California, a good work ethic and a "can do" spirit was the perfect combination of right place-right time. After three years down under, Kat moved back to the US and her husband, Australian Rob McDonald quickly followed.
They founded Old Bridge Cellars and began importing the legendary Australian wines they both loved...d'Arenberg, Jasper Hill, Yarra Yaring, Leeuwin Estate. Along the way, Kat took a break and went to law school, they planted vineyards in both Australia and the Napa Valley and began making their own wines including the eponymous named Mak.
In 2008, they founded Art+Farm Wine in Napa. Art+Farm is home to their single vineyard wines the girls in the vineyard, their outrageous blends-The Messenger and their true varietals: Circadia.
Kat and Rob live in Napa with their two children and an odd looking creature that is supposed to be a dog. Kat is a little obsessed with her heritage breed chickens and the eggs they lay and also her bees. Rob is obsessed with compost and growing the perfect tomato. Both are huge proponents of dry farming and see water as the single biggest factor in the future of agriculture.
