Our second release from the Wendling Vineyard is compelling and complex. Full of uncoiled tension and assertive aromatics, this wine truly reflects the dynamic range of this site and clonal selection.

Vintage Notes: 

The 2013 vintage offered a variety of conditions. A rather dry January gave way to normal winter rainfall. As warmer weather arrived, bud break occurred in early April. Following a moderate summer, the first week of September brought very warm weather, along with a corresponding rise in sugar and malic acid levels. We picked our fruit as quickly as possible. Our 2013 wines display appealing texture and suppleness due to marginally higher pH levels.

Vineyard Notes: 

Wendling lies just along the Anderson Valley AVA boundary, thereby earning the distinction of being the Valley’s closest vineyard to the coast. Exceptional for many reasons, the 15 acres that we farm were planted in 2008 with tight spacing, some meter by meter, to 10 clones of Pinot Noir. Expectations are high for this vineyard, as we anticipate it evolving into one of the valley’s preeminent sites.
