Hirsch has an incredibly diverse vinyard, the variety of soil types, topography and climactic influences, coupled with the proximity of the Pacific coast (just three miles away) and altitude of the vineyard (over 400 metres) make for a site that is fascinating. Thanks to the San Andreas Fault (a major geological fault line that runs through the property), there is a vast array of different soil types that can have a profound influence on the fruit grown there. All these factors has led to the vineyard being divided into 61 individual blocks, each of which imparts its own specificity and is therefore harvested and vinified separately. This wine is full of red cherry and redcurrant fruit flavours, with a citrusy zing. We structured tannins with medium acidity and a long spicy finish. Beautiful stuff!
