2016 Melon, Antle Vineyard, Chalone
South facing slope, 1800 ft elevation overlooking Monterey with moderating coastal influence. Situated just beneath an extinct volcano with decomposed granite and limestone soils. Picked early to preserve natural acidity, whole cluster pressed to concrete eggs for fermentation and subsequent sur lie elevage. Chalky oyster shell and citrus blossom with mouthwatering acidity. 11.2 % ABV.
