Vineyard: Luna Matta
Region: Adelaida District, Paso Robles, CA
Bottle Size: 750ml
Possibly our finest example of this variety. From one of the greatest Grand Cru properties in Paso Robles planted to Italian and Rhone varieties. Unfortunately, this vineyard was sold to a big winery that tore out the vines in ‘22 and replanted it to Bordeaux varieties for their own use. 2021 is our last vintage from this amazing site. Do not be fooled by the light color, gorgeous, ethereal notes emerge from the glass.
