Shale Terrace, 2009

$ 55.00

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

We are back to the usual production levels of this as weather cooperated fairly well at bloom. Still, it sold out on futures anyway. Typical Shale Terrace stone fruit, spicy and well-textured with a mineral-laden finish are pretty much hallmarks of this small section of the vineyard. While there is none for sale currently, we will pour from our own bottles at the open house so you won’t have to.
