Vineyard: Coastview Vineyard
Location: Monterey, CA
Alcohol: 11.3%
Production: 228 cases

On the nose, this wine is matchbook flinty and reminiscent of sea foam. The palate is ethereal with a kiss of citrus, a little bit of Anjou pear, and a mineral backbone to round it out.

Foot-crushed whole-cluster in the picking bins and allowed to macerate for a day before being pressed off to a stainless-steel tank, settled for a day and barreled down to neutral oak barrels, fermenting and aging for 8 months on the lees. Racking was done two months before bottling to allow the wine to come together in the tank. Bottled unfined & unfiltered.

Coastview vineyard sits at 2400ft elevation and straddles an exposed ridge of limestone, granite and chalk soils with sweeping views of Salinas Valley, the surrounding Gablian Mountains, and Monterey Bay in the distance. The vineyard has been farmed organically by John Allen and his son Parker since it was purchased in the 90s. Their holistic approach with a focus on sustainability can be seen in everything from the large flock of sheep that they use in lieu of herbicides to the artesian spring wells that they use for irrigation in times of severe drought.
