Chalone Vineyard is located on the west-side of Pinnacles National Park, in Central California. This wine comes from 3 long undulating rows of Grenache in the southwest corner of Chalone Vineyard, at about 1,200' elevation. The soil composition is unique to the Chalone appellation, comprised of a high amount of limestone.

Gently hand-harvested after midnight to ensure cold fruit arrives at the winery. The grapes were sorted by hand before being slowly destemmed into an open top tank. The wine was fermented cold at 62 degrees for only 8 days on skin contact, before being gently pressed.The wine was barreled down into old neutral barrels and aged for 10 months before bottling.

Tasting notes

Our Chalone Vineyard Grenache is a pretty, bright, fuchsia color. Aromatics of plums, raspberries, and candied strawberries are intense, with nuances of baking spices in the background. The first sip is smooth and delicate, with a soft mid-palate str ucture of fine tannins. Serve this wine with a slight chill to enhance its fruit flavors . Drink now or for the next 4 years.
