Provisor Vineyard is a storybook site just outside the town of Healdsburg. The Provisors organically farm just 3 estate acres and we are wildly excited to be one of the few who gets to share in the fruits of their labors. Tablas Creek clone Grenache revels in the strikingly red gravely clay loam soils and warm days and cool nights of its Dry Creek home. The grapes are all crushed by foot and fermented whole cluster, with nothing more than gentle punchdowns throughout.
Pressed to old, neutral French oak barrique for a 10 month elevage, capturing and preserving the delicate and expressive nature. The resulting wine is elegant and graceful; super fresh and bright, high tone wild red raspberry and strawberry fruit ballasted by licorice, cinnamon and spice. Whole cluster stem inclusion adds soft, textural tannin with subtle yet nuanced fall earth tones.
