2016 Walker's Nebbiolo 1.5L

Add To Cart

We farm two Nebbiolo blocks at two dramatically different sites. Our newest planting at Gist Ranch Estate is just over an acre, situated on heavily fractured Vacqueros Sandstone. High in elevation and mostly above the fog, this site consistently ripens this fickle variety and is the backbone our Nebbiolo wines. Our Winery Estate Nebbiolo is sourced from a small 0.3 acre hillside perched just above the Rapley Trail Vineyard.

There are currently only 5 magnum bottles left of the 2016 Walker's Nebbiolo.

Winemaker Notes
The 2016 Vintage was another drought year, with early bud-break, bloom and veraison. Poor weather during the early bloom caused shatter and millerandage. Vine stress became an issue late in the year with many of our dry farmed vines showing water and nutrient stress for the first time. The resulting wines are bright and energetic with mid-weight personalities. They are profoundly aromatic and balanced wines that are site expressive and pure.
