Vineyard Notes
This Castello-owned vineyard is located in the sub-AVA of Green Valley on the southewestern edge of the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County. Situated only 15 miles from the coast, calm, foggy mornings give way to warm afternoons and cool, breezy night, providing a perfect climate for growing Pinot Noir. It is planted with 12 acres of clones 115, 777, and Pommard 4, which are nourished by the Goldridge sandy loam soils of this historic district.
Winemaker Notes
Winter provided a record-breaking rainfall - a welcome end to the 4-years of drought. Bloom and fruit set in May occurred under ideal conditions. Summer was warm but the vines weathered the heat well and maturity moved along at a steady pace. A short but intense heat wave during the first part of September brought brix levels up dramatically and winemakers waited for the pH, acids, flavor and color development in the grapes to catch up to sugar accumulation. The 2018 wine quality shows a lot of bright acidity and fresh varietal aromas in the white wines, and deep color, sweet fruit flavors. Looking like it will be another classic year! - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
Perfect to pair with ginger chicken and saffron rice, duck confit, or pappardelle with brown butter sage sauce.
