VINEYARD

An iconic vineyard within the Carneros AVA, Stanly Ranch was originally planted in 1870 by Judge Stanly. Saintsbury’s relationship with Stanly Ranch formed in 1984 and this partnership remains intimate despite the popularity of the site. Today, we enjoy exclusive access to the Stanly Ranch grapes from 3 hillside blocks which sit on clay loam soil, allowing for excellent exposure , drainage and development of the fruit.

Appellation: Carneros, Napa

Clone:  Dijon 115

Terroir:  Clay loam soils with mix of exposures from hillside blocks creating a bright fruit Pinot noir with a touch of spiciness.

 

WINEMAKING

The fruit  is night harvested and arrives on the crushpad at daybreak. From there, each block remains separate and receives gentle handling starting on the sorting table and to the open top fermenters for 5 day cold soak, 14 day total cuvaison.
