Winemaker Notes
After an initial sorting, we fermented the grapes in small, open-top bins that were punched down two to three times daily to extract color, flavor and complexity. The wine was pressed off into oak barrels of which 40% were new. There it rested for 11 months before bottling.
Vineyard Notes
The 2007 Tondre Grapefield Pinot Noir is our third release from this vineyard. The Tondre Grapefield is located in the heart of Monterey’s Santa Lucia Highlands, with the elevation ranging from 175 to 400 feet. This all-Pinot Noir vineyard has the ideal terroir to grow a magnificent Pinot Noir grape. The fruit is a blend of one third each Pommard, Dijon 115 and 667 clones.
