Let’s check all the boxes for an incredible vineyard site: own-rooted, check; dry farmed, check; Wente clone vines planted at 1800' in a mix of limestone and granite soils: check; spectacular view of the Pinnacles and Salinas Valley: check. Brosseau was the first vineyard we started Under The Wire with, and it continues to inspire us. The 2015 version is maybe the most elegant iteration we have made, yet it still has the hallmark savory laurel bay, peppercorn spice, baked red apple and structure that makes the wine so distinctive. When we press the miniscule clusters and berries, we are lucky to get 80 gallons of vin clair juice per ton to use for this wine (a typical white wine pressing will yield about 150-160 gallons per ton). Though our accountant may not love that part, the density and flavor are undeniable. As with most of the Under The Wire wines, this wine loves food and some air time after release or a few years in the cellar. 1 g/l dosage
