Jolie-Laide Grenache Chalone 2020
|California, Central Coast, Chalone
Nestled high in the granite and limestone soils of the Gabilan Mountain Range in the Chalone appellation of Monterey County. Coastal Marine influence of the nearby Monterey Bay combined with high elevations create large diurnal swings that experience much less fog than the valley below make for low yielding fruit with complex concentration and purity. Foot crushed and fermented whole cluster and aged in neutral barrique. Dusty red strawberry and cherry complimented by notes of orange zest and spice flow into soft tannin with fresh juicy acid.
