THE FABLEIST ZINFANDEL 206 ARROYO GRANDE VALLEY 2021

13 Current Inventory

There's plenty of jammy black-fruited goodness here with power, balance and complexity. 

Another great wine from the duo of Curt Schalchlin and Andrew Jones.  This Zinfandel is sourced entirely from the Old Potrero Vineyard in Arroyo Grande Valley, which has a perfect plateau for these grapes. This old vine Zinfandel is located only 8 miles from the ocean, so the wine retains incredible acidity, even at riper levels. This block is entirely dry farmed in what is essentially beach sand with 10-by-10 spacing, evocative of Spain. This produces incredibly small yields. The grapes were hand-picked and 100% destemmed. We fermented for 3 weeks, then pressed off to barrel. We prefer to use American oak to counterbalance the brightness of the fruit.  (winemaker notes)
