Production Notes
The 2017 vintage yielded an average amount of rainfall overall, however approaching harvest we experienced incredible heat spikes with temperatures above 110°F for more than two weeks. A sudden temperature increase during this critical time makes for a swift harvest as sugar levels spike resulting in the entire vineyard ripening simultaneously. All of these factors amounted to a very condensed harvest, similar to the year prior.
Vineyard Notes
Chalone estate vineyard is planted between 1,650 and 1,800 feet of elevation, on top of the Gavilan Mountains on the eastern side of the Salinas Valley.
