Odonata Wines 2017 Sangiovese, Machado Creek, Santa Clara Valley
Machado Creek Vineyard: Just outside Gilroy tucked into the hillside, which allows for long even ripening of my Rhone Varietals. The soil is red clay loam and has been fed over time by the creek that runs through the middle of the vineyard. This 10 acre vineyard is where we get our Petite Sirah, Grenache, Mourvedre, and Sangiovese. This vineyard is the heart of Odonata’s wines representing 30% of production.
Daily gentle punch down during cold soak, fermentation and maceration for 14 days pressed to barrel used 20% new oak
Produced un-filtered & un-fined
Cool nights and warm days make this marvelous complex wine. It starts with darker berries, met with sweet strawberry notes and finishes with a smooth rustic and smokey nose.
