Boer Vineyard, Chalone, Monterey County, CA
What we love
Dark fruit and earthy notes come together with baking spices and a floral lift in this complex expression of Mourvèdre – an outstanding varietal that many have not heard of, but that few will forget once they’ve tried it. Savory and rustic but incredibly approachable. Drink this with a burger, with char sui (Chinese BBQ pork), or just by itself on the couch as the night winds down. Enjoy!
About this Wine
Voted as one of San Francisco Chronicle’s “Winemakers to Watch” in 2015, this wine spotlights winemaker Scott Shapley’s knack with this tricky grape.
Through the characteristic fruit and minerality of this iconic wine region, Flywheel aims to bring the splendor of Chalone to your glass. His wines fall at some delectable place between the lean, acid-driven wines and the plusher, higher-octane styles. His wines have a mouth-filling range of fruit flavors that you wouldn’t expect from wines that are so easy to drink.
