Where a larger winery might ferment whites quickly in large, temperature-controlled steel tanks for a consistency of style from year to year, the goal at Ovum is to reflect the vintage, no matter what it brings. So the techniques are old-school: House and Kostic allow fermentation to happen spontaneously and linger for months, in neutral (old) oak barrels and Nomblot cement eggs. The resulting wines are richly textured and deeply layered. Rieslings are all from single vineyards and are pure expressions of terroir and vintage. The names reflect the emotion they engender.
