Hopewell Hills: Gathered Stones 2017

A very soft slope facing southeast 300 feet off the Valley floor. There is almost no topsoil with a deep “stream” of well fractured stones flowing diagonally across the slope. “Bubbles in the rock with abundant large crystal structures spur the vines to produce a structurally precise wine quilted with alternating red and blue fruit flavors.

244  cases produced.
