1772 Grenache 2017
The 2017 vintage produced a lush wine, with a classic Grenache tannin structure that shows nicely in the mid-palate. The Grenache grapes coming from the Poletti section offer a juicy textural component. This section is planted at a slightly higher elevation at the base of the foothills of the Santa Lucia Highlands. It receives ample afternoon sun before the coastal breeze and evening fog roll into the valley. The block planted on the Salaal section contributes the velvety tannin structure. These vines are planted on the valley floor, which offers a rich clay soil.
