Vineyard Notes:

This spectacular vineyard sits along Laguna Ridge at the edge of the Green Valley AVA. Meticulously farmed and planted at a very high density of 2420 vines per acre, the vineyard is planted to Dijon clone 548 and 95. Once a spectacular apple orchard we pay homage to the Martinelli Family and the history of the site by naming the wine ‘La Pommeraie’ – French for apple orchard.

Production Notes:

Indigenous yeast fermentation in French oak barrels and extended aging of 16 months on lees has produced a wine with exceptional complexity.

Winemaker Notes:

A warm February and March lead to early bud break in 2015. The warm winter transitioned to May temperatures that were actually colder than temps in January and February. These cold temperatures at bloom delayed flowering and fruit set was compromised. The poor set resulted in yields being reduced by as much as 50% in some of our vineyards. The summer weather can be characterized by cool nights and foggy morning and resulted in veraison that was 1 to 2 weeks ahead of 2014. The harvest was our earliest on record for Benovia and ended quickly due to the low yields.
