Vinification Made with grapes from Arroyo Seco AVA's own vineyards in Monterey County. Located at the foot of the Santa Lucia Highlands, the vineyard is flat, gravelly, sedimentary, rocky and well-drained soil. Cool winds from Monterey Bay blow the Salinas Valley southwards, slowing the ripening process, resulting in grapes with plenty of fruit but still with a pronounced acidity. .

The Pinot Noir is hand-picked and gently whole bunch pressed. Fermentation is slow and cold, no malolactic fermentation to retain beautiful fruit aromas. After the first fermentation, the wine is racked and aged in stainless steel tanks before bottling.

Aging: 100% stainless steel
TA: 6.7g/L
pH: 3.45

Winery information
The winery was founded in the 1970s by Nikki and Gaby Hahn, German-Swiss immigrants. Initially, we planted cabernet trees and started making wine, but due to the characteristics of this region, which is affected by the cold currents of the Pacific Ocean and the deep, cold seawater of Monterey Bay, in the 1980s, we began to revitalize our capabilities in a cooler environment. Replanted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In 1988, Nicky, who was convinced of the potential of this area, started activities to have Santa Lucia Highlands (SLH) recognized by AVA, and finally in 1995 it was recognized as AVA. Today, the Santa Lucia Highlands is widely known as a fine wine producing area, especially Pinot Noir.

Today, the Hahn family owns 6 company fields in Monterey County, 4 company fields 260ha in SLH, 2 company fields 184ha in Arroyo Seco AVA spreading to the south, a total of 444ha. increase. Of these, 140ha is planted with Pinot Noir, accounting for 12% of the entire SLH Pinot Noir field, making it the winery with the largest share. It also has the richest clonal variety in the region, currently growing 21 different Pinot Noirs.

The variety of soils, climates, sunshine due to the direction of the slopes, and the combination of clones make it possible to create a wonderful Pinot Noir that cannot be imitated by others, and the Pinot Noir expresses the individuality of the terroir of each company field. I'm here. The growing season in this region is about 25 days longer than in other California viticultural regions, resulting in grapes with rich flavor, depth, structure and great concentration.

Tasting Notes
Pale salmon in color, this dry Rosé offers delicate aromas of cherry, raspberry and watermelon and notes of fresh floral rose. The palate brings vibrant acidity, flavors of raspberry and watermelon with undertones of minerality that lead to a pleasant dry finish.

Grapes for this wine are estate grown in the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County. A hidden gem, located below the Santa Lucia Highlands, these vineyards sit on a gravelly alluvial plain with rocky soils fostering excellent drainage. Cool winds channeling South from Monterey Bay through the Salinas Valley ensure gradual ripening, full development of vibrant fruit flavors and bright acidity. Pinot Noir grapes are hand-picked and gently whole cluster pressed. This wine is slowly fermented at cold temperatures to preserve beautiful fruit aromatics and restrict malolactic fermentation from progressing. Racked after primary fermentation, the wine is aged in stainless steel prior to bottling.
