2018 Vocal Vineyards 'Alfaro Vineyard' Gruner Veltliner Santa Cruz Mountains

$59.95

The “wine of place” goal is achieved here in spades. Keep in mind as you sip that this comes from a high-elevation site overlooking the Monterey Bay, surrounded by redwoods, and you may develop a new appreciation for terroir. Red cherry and wild strawberry aromas find a dusting of warm spice, wild herbs, and loamy earth. Medium-plus in body, with a firm backbone, it doesn’t skimp on quenching acidity or fine tannins, which gives it a Burgundian feel.
