About the Wine:

 

The fruit for the Fleur de Solène 2015 was sourced from the top sites on the superior, Westside of Paso Robles. The vines are spaced 2,300 vines per acre - ideal for working them hard to prodcue a more complex wine, with miniscule yields of just 2.5 tonnes per acre. As a result, just 300 cases of this elixir were produced in 2015.

 

The wine spend 16 months in French oak, only 40% new, so the emphasis is on texture and style over oak-flavour. It's the highest scoring vintage of this cuvée to date.

 

The 2015 vintage produced exceptional wines, although yields were incredibly low due to high winds causing poor flowering. The best wines are full of vibrancy, intensity and energy.

  • “Tasted out of bottle, the 2016 Fleur de Solene is 43% Syrah, 35% Grenache, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 18 months in 30% new French oak. It’s a full-bodied yet light, elegant and complex effort that has lots of sweet black raspberry and cassis fruits, notes of spice, pepper, and game, fine tannins, and a great finish. It’s a beautiful wine any way you look at it and should cruise for 10-15 years in cold cellars."
