From the Rodrick Family Farm in Chalone on high elevation volcanic soil, this was picked early and aged in a concrete egg. The nose shows some grass, stone fruits towards nectarine and early season apricot, and a light lees and mineral note. The palate is light and clean with stone fruits, some minerals and a just there suggestion of volcanic and concrete minerality. D&M Tasting Notes
Formerly known as Antle Vineyard, this is a dramatic high desert site in the Gabilan Mountains neighboring Pinnacles National Park. South facing slope, 1800 ft elevation overlooking Monterey with moderating coastal influence. Situated just beneath an extinct volcano with decomposed granite and limestone soils. Picked early to preserve natural acidity, whole cluster pressed to concrete eggs where it underwent spontaneous fermentation and subsequent 6 month sur lie elevage.
Chalky oyster shell, lemon verbena and citrus blossom with mouthwatering acidity. Winery Notes
