Shale Terrace, 2010

$ 60.00

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

These vines were less affected/altered by the heat given the larger leaf canopy in this block to protect the fruit from the sun. It is much more like past vintages and one of my favorite Shales ever. There is that nice stone fruit thread that precedes and follows the red fruit center, and juicy mouth-watering acidity.
