2021 Dragonette, Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills 1x75cl

JD94JS96RP94VM96
Blend: 100% Pinot Noir Vintage production: 350 cases Historic Sanford & Benedict is the original Pinot Noir vineyard (est. 1971) in the Santa Ynez Valley (Sta. Rita Hills was not established until... 2001), and it has been the inspiration for winemakers for ever since. Originally planted to a selection of apparently secret “heritage” clones (subsequently expanded and replanted over the years), this magical site simply buzzes with cosmic energy. Dragonette purchases fruit here from two distinct blocks of older vines (1999) and oldest vines (1972), buying by the acre so they may employ specialized organic farming practices. These stately vines stand tall on their enormous trunks, while still producing a solid crop of beautifully concentrated grapes. The resulting wines display sappy red and black cherry fruits with old-vine style and grace.

2018 Scherrer, Scherrer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley 12x75cl

VM90
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Production: 150 cases The Scherrer Estate Vineyard surrounding the family’s farm and house in Alexander Valley, at the base of the Vaca Mountains. Four Corners... Wine: "The 2018 is a beautifully distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon. The aromatics are loaded with minerality and exotic sandalwood, super-high notes of dark chocolate and floral coffee beans, unusual yet utterly captivating and refined. The palate boasts an incredible structure, coiled and full of tension and energy. With air, layers of pure reds fruits emerge with an elemental-mineral undertone. Notes of toasted fennel seeds and cassis emerge on the long finish. This has masses of cellaring potential, and pushes the envelope for Sonoma Cabernets. In a word: stunning."

2021 Dragonette, Black Label Chardonnay, Sta. Rita Hills 12x75cl

JD97VM95+
Blend: 100% Chardonnay Vintage production: 150 cases This small production, reserve level wine is a blend of the team's favourite barrels, each selected for its outstanding depth, concentration,... complexity, and engaging personality. THE VINEYARDS Bentrock: Dramatic, north facing block overlooking the Santa Ynez River to the south and Radian to the West. Rocky, windy site gives wines of intense power and length, interjected with complex mineral notes and structure. Rita’s Crown: Steep, South-Southwest facing blocks regularly visited by high winds and fog. Low vigor soils of sandy and clay loams with diatomaceous earth produce grapes with tropical fruits, chalky minerals, and great natural acidity. Radian: Dramatic, west facing block high above the valley floor stares directly at the mighty, cold, windy Pacific. Very low yields and thick skins combine to make powerful wines, with intense minerals and high acidity. The individual blocks were picked in separate passes with field sorting. Within hours, the grapes were gently pressed, the juice settled, then put down to barrels for primary fermentation, which took place with native yeasts. The wine sees native malolactic fermentation in barrel and aging on the lees (without stirring) in French oak (67% new) for 18 months, before blending and bottling.

2015 Scherrer, Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley 1x75cl

Blend: 100% Chardonnay Production: 796 cases While grown primarily in the sandy Goldridge soil, which tends to produce Pinot Noir with flavours of red fruits and orange peel, this wine also... illustrates some of the deep, brooding black cherry character generally found in the region’s clay soils. It was bottled without fining or filtration, and will age gracefully for many years. Four Corners Wine: "Pure Russian River Valley - lovely dark, earthy, black-fruit aromatics, with a touch of scorched earth, bags of depth, framed by a touch of white pepper and anise. The palate has a great intensity, so juicy and crisp, very classic RRV-style, lots of crisp red berries - especially wild strawberry. Simply delicious, and plenty to come."
