Shale Terrace, 2002

$ 50.00

Within the Scherrer Vineyard there are several different soils. One vineyard site, the “Shale Terrace,” is located on a relatively deep, well-drained, fractured shale subsoil. It yields wines with an uncommon blend of richness and finesse. This wine was bottled without fining or filtration to capture the beauty and personality of this particular vineyard site.

Winemaker's Notes

Due to a slightly larger yield (10%) we made slightly more of this wine than the past few vintages. After the futures offering, we also decided to allocate only enough of this for existing ‘Shale’ restaurant accounts, so we actually have a little to sell at this time. Its high-toned aromatics of stone fruits, dried herbs and its ‘minerality’ define and separate it from the OMV bottling.
