Soil & Grapes

A mere 1.2 acres and planted in 2000 to 10 clones of pinot noir, including 777, 667, and swan clone own rooted, the vineyard is situated in mid Carmel Valley on a south facing hillside of up to 30 degree slope-The terraces reveal a terroir of clay and Carmel Valley Chalk, which imparts a wonderful minerality to the wine. There are 3 distinct blocks, the terraced hillside planted in a spacing of 8x4, the lower block of a planting of 6x4 and the guesthouse block in a spacing of 5x3. The dense planting on a single cordon, makes for very low yields and intense fruit quality. The climate is low region one, with warm days and very cool nights, so the growing season is extended, with hang time for the fruit of up to 120 days. Average harvest date is mid October.
