Antonio Galloni 93 Points - "Beautifully textured and exotic in the glass. Even though this fruit was picked at relatively low sugars, the inherent richness of this late harvest in the first week of October and the personality of these old Wente clones comes though in spades. Hints of almond, orange peel, mint and tangerine flesh out on a super-inviting finish supported by a real sense of phenolic intensity."
|Single vineyard wines crafted by the alchemy of ocean, fog, soil and patience.
At Knez Winery, we believe that the deeper and more extensive our knowledge, the better our wine will be. We start with an Anderson Valley location that is epic in its richness-with maritime influences, complex soil, a near perfect amount of sun exposure and heritage clones like Martini, Pommard, David Bruce, Wadenswil and Wente. To this, we add the beauty of science-detailed analytics and painstaking research that help us make the most of our land’s bounty. We consider ourselves stewards of the land and our farming practices are sustainable and progressive. In our winemaking, we are hands-on in the vineyard and hands-off in the barrel room. Through careful stewardship of our land and attention to detail in every phase of winemaking, we are producing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir every bit as complex, expressive and ageworthy as our compatriots in Burgundy, France.
