Wonderfully bright, crisp and well-balanced with a nose of tropical fruit, vanilla, citrus and pear and a rich, concentrated, juicy palate full of flavours of pineapple, butterscotch and minerals. Like a glass of Californian sunshine!
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
On the west side of the Salinas Valley, directly in the path of Monterey's relentless afternoon winds, sits Ranch 32. This is the place where Scheid first planted vines in 1972 when winegrowing was in its infancy in Monterey County.
The specialness of the region was understood, but it would take a few decades for the vineyards to reach their full potential. Ranch 32 is about highlighting the natural characteristics of the terroir and conveying the taste of place. Each vintage, the winemakers produce small lots of wines from their sustainably farmed estate vineyards (which run on 100% wind power) that represent the best of the appellation.
