We make very small batch wines, keeping the clones separate from harvest through bottling so that the wine consumer can experience these same differences. Though the nuances are small, they are very discernable. By sourcing the grapes from our estate vineyards where we can control the growing conditions and terroir, we can then control for all winemaking variables such as yeast, type of barrel, age of the barrel, toast of the barrel and length of time in the barrel, thereby highlighting just the clonal differences between the grapes.
Our first release was our 2017 Viognier, which is currently available. Our Viognier is light and airy, with a hint of rose on the nose and a pleasant green apple finish that makes for easy sipping on warm summer nights. We will release our 2016 Syrah on June 15th. Later in the year we will release our 2017 Roussanne, 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 7 and 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 8. We are very excited about how all of this wine is tasting in the barrel and cannot wait to introduce it to the public.
Early next year we expect to release our 2017 Malbec and Petit Verdot. Then in the fall of 2018 we look forward to introducing you to 4 clones of Cabernet Sauvignon. Cheers!
