Hope's Cuvée Chardonnay
The Hope’s Cuvee is a single vineyard block wine that has been historically bottled for the last 35 years. The 5-acre parcel of Chardonnay was initially planted in 1980. The fruit is picked in 4 different picks based on vine age, clonal differences and maturity profile. The grapes are sorted, whole-cluster pressed and fermented in oak barrels with native yeast. Based on the lots and the acidity, the wines are further developed through the malolactic process. Sur lie aging with occasional stirring for 8 months in 50% new French oak provides texture and depth with evolution in aromatics. The wine is unfined and unfiltered to preserve the wine’s density and concentration.
Our 2018 Hope’s Cuvee Chardonnay is a gorgeous wine with striking richness and depth. Citrus peel, lemon custard, apricots, honey and subtle floral notes give the wine a complex bouquet. The wine is more generous on the palate with a creamy texture, balanced acidity which is well representative of the opulent vintage. The wine finishes with a saline minerality framed in notes of French Oak, hazelnut and spice.Wine Resources
“Padrone” Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend that reflects the utmost quality of fruit from the Signorello terroir. The grapes were picked in the range of 24.5-26 Brix and the longer hang time for the fruit due to the excellent weather resulted in concentrated, explosive, flavorful berries. The grapes were destemmed, thoroughly hand-sorted, and fermented with native yeast with careful attention to extraction and tank maceration for a powerful expression of the tannins and color. 18 months in 70% new French Oak allowed the wine to soften with the aromas developing harmoniously. The wine is unfined and unfiltered to preserve the wine’s density and concentration.
The 2016 Padrone is a beautiful wine that exudes concentration, depth and balance. The complex bouquet of blackberry, cassis, licorice, lavender, dark chocolate and spice asserts its terroir in a striking manner. The tannins are powerful yet exceptionally balanced yielding a juicy and plush mouthfeel. Time in the glass only reveals further complexity with lifted notes of tobacco, plum, hints of espresso and sage. The 2016 is evocative and full of promises to get further nuanced with cellar age.Wine Resources
