1772 MIXED DUO SET 2018
We combined two of our most popular signature wines to create the perfect gift for the wine enthusiast on your list. Each gift set includes one bottle of 1772 Chardonnay 2018 and one bottle of 1772 Pinot Noir 2018.
1772 Chardonnay 2018:
The 1772 Chardonnay is Tolosa’s classic Chardonnay, as it captures the essence of our estate vineyard, Edna Ranch. In 2018, the fall weather was mild yet consistent, which allowed us to take our time harvesting the grapes to make sure they were picked at preferred ripeness. This vintage was showing an attractive acidity, so we cut back on new oak to harmonize all components of the Chardonnay. The cooler vintage shines in this wine showcasing the fresh fruit, tension and minerality of Edna Valley.

1772 Pinot Noir 2018:
This Pinot Noir is a medley of Tolosa’s estate vineyard Edna Ranch. The estate vineyard is spread throughout the Edna Valley, producing six unique vineyard sections with 60 soil types and a myriad of microclimates. For the 2018 vintage, this wine will show the bright red fruit common in Edna Valley as well as the freshness that comes with the cool coastal climate. Juicy fruit with acidity upfront exhibiting notes of blood orange, and rhubarb progressing to forest floor, blonde tobacco, black tea, crushed oyster shell and potpourri on the finish.
