Acero Chardonnay 2015
each 

Acero is the Spanish word for steel and it refers to the fact that this wine has never seen any oak. Especially selected for fruit intensity and aromatics, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel to capture the purity of the flavors. After completing malolactic fermentation, the wine is kept in the tank until bottling in early spring.

Tasting Notes

The aromas are classic from the See clone: expansive, fresh and floral, reminiscent of rose petals and jasmine with elegant notes of Golden Delicious apple and Asian pear. The mouthfeel is full-flavored and chewy but also flinty, mineral, like wet pebbles. Easy to drink and perfect with foods like tapas, seafood and light dishes. I would recommend serving it at 46-48 F.

The Vinification

The grapes were harvested August 22 and 31, gently whole-cluster pressed and cold fermented, using our own indigenous yeast, in stainless steel tanks at 55 degrees F. After completing the primary fermentation, the wine went through 100% malolactic fermentation in the same tank. It was bottled in April 2016.

Cristina Pinot Noir 2013
each 

Named after my daughter, Cristina, this wine is a special barrel selection from a unique blend of our Pinot Noir clones that we feel best represent the terroir, or personality, of the Don Miguel Vineyard and show the most potential for aging.

Tasting Notes

This bottling of Cristina exhibits deep, expansive aromas of cherries and black fruits, clove and orange peel. On the palate it opens up with intense, savory flavors: rich and seductive, with great balance between oak, fruit and acidity, refined tannins and solid structure. It will continue to develop for at least another 10-15 years. I would recommend serving it at cellar temperature, between 58-60° F, and it will benefit from decanting.

The Vinification

The grapes were harvested September 6 - 8. After fermentation, the wine was aged for four months in new French barrels, coopered by Remond from the forest of Bertranges, and Marchive from Tronçais. In January the blend was assembled and the wine went to 40% new, 60% 1-year-old barrels. It was bottled, unfined and unfiltered, in April 2015.

Mas Cavalls Pinot Noir 2013
each 

We have named this bottling Mas Cavalls after the Catalan name for Horse Farm, since our equestrian center lies right
below the vineyard.  

Tasting Notes

Elegant nose, with classic varietal aromas of wild cherry, clove and sandalwood plus the charactieristic note of forest fl oor from this special vineyard. The tannins are supple and graceful, and the palate is round, complex and fl eshy. I would recommend serving it at cellar temperature, between 58-60° F.

The Vinification

The grapes were harvested September 10- 23. After minimal crushing, they fermented in small stainless steel tanks, with no whole clusters. The wine was aged in premium French oak barrels, 36% new, coopered by Remond from the forest of Bertranges, Marchive and Rousseau from the Center of France. It was bottled, unfined and unfiltered, in August 2014.
