Type: Red Wine
The Kirschenmann vineyard is owned and farmed by Turley winemaker, Tegan Passalacqua. The ungrafted vines were planted in 1915 in the silica-rich sandy soils of the east side of the Mokelumne River AVA. Thanks to the river’s cool waters and delta breezes, the head-trained, dry-farmed vines are constantly protected from the heat.
This is a a lighter style wine--aromatic with striking mid-palate sweetness and depth. Ripe blueberry, mint and spice notes all run through this racy, expressive Zinfandel.
