Wine Notes
It looked like the drought caught up with the rest of the Central Coast of California in 2015.   Not only were yields down due to lack of rainfall, most of California saw strange cold weather during bloom time.  Nevertheless, the season was very early, but surprisingly we made elegant acidic wines.   The Central Coast Viognier comes from a single vineyard right down the road from the winery called Gimelli Vineyard.  The crop was astonishingly low, but what was there was outstanding. After hand harvesting, the whole grape clusters were pressed when received at the winery, and the juice was moved by gravity to Calera’s barrel cellar.
