En Primeur - In Bond per 6x75cl
Old Vines is composed of a variety of old sites from California that are either too small to be made into a vineyard designate wine or are 'new' to the Turley family (and way of farming). Vines are anywhere from 41 to 129 years old, and a true representation of California old vine Zinfandel, hailing from vineyards in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lodi, Contra Costa, Amador and Paso Robles.
Larry Turley and his winemaker Ehren Jordan continue to produce a fantastic range of wines from some of California's oldest, head-pruned, dry-farmed Zinfandel vineyards. They have managed to persuade the owners of some of California's finest old vineyards to let them take total control of viticulture; farming organically (their own vineyards are also biodynamic), reducing yields to extremely low levels and picking very late. Winemaking is gentle and totally unmanipulated, with very gentle extraction. The wines are matured for 14-16 months in 75% French, 25% American oak barrels (25% new) and bottles unfined and unfiltered. Yes, they are high in alcohol, but they are also very pure, fine expressions of their individual terroirs
