J. Christopher Estate Vineyard Rock Blocks Selection Pinot Noir
This special cuvée is from our own Appassionata Vineyard, which surrounds the Appassionata Estate winery. We have a great diversity of soil types and clones, giving us many options for the blending palette. This edition is a blend of fruit from the rockiest parts of the vineyard, which has thin volcanic clay topsoil over fractured basalt bedrock. It’s amazing to see how this very rocky soil is reflected in the firm structure, dark, brambly fruit and forceful texture of the wine.
