Description

From a vineyard owned by David and Stacy Gollnick planted in 2009 at 925 ft, 8 miles from the Pacific, on shale and silty clay loams. This is on a south-facing slope. 50% whole cluster. Captivating and Complex, Elegant and Fine, For the Cellar, Juicy and Fruity, Something Special.

erched on a shale-laced mountain, Mindego Ridge Vineyard is a 10-acre vineyard located in the Santa Cruz Mountains, 40 miles south of San Francisco and 9 miles east of the Pacific Ocean. It is known for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and is part of a resurgence in the region that began with pioneers Paul Masson and Martin Ray in the early 20th century.

The Santa Cruz Mountains have a long history of wine-making, including notable moments such as producing two winning wines in the 1976 Judgement of Paris, both red and white.

The Santa Cruz Mountains AVA was officially recognized in 1981 and was one of the first AVAs to be defined by its mountain topography, including vineyards located at high elevations up to 2600 feet. The AVA’s location near the coast and its proximity to the ocean result in a maritime climate that influences the terroir and the wines produced in the region.

From a vineyard owned by David and Stacy Gollnick planted in 2009 at 925 ft, 8 miles from the Pacific, on shale and silty clay loams. This is on a south-facing slope. 50% whole cluster. This has a lovely sweet, ripe cherry and plum fruit core, and is rounded and seductive with elegance and density at the same time. There’s also a lovely wild strawberry character that emerges on day two, and then a bit of raspberry crunch. Such an appealing, forward Pinot Noir with silkiness, elegance and freshness.
