Pressed Wines is a small project that allows Steve the opportunity to make wines that he normally wouldn't under Palmina because they're not Italian varietals.
Our 2015 Pressed Pinot Noir is sourced from a small, family-owned vineyard in Nipomo called Quinta del Mar. Alex and Esperanza McCullough planted the vineyard in 2003 with a holistic approach to farming in mind. They brought on Francisco Ramirez, the head of Palmina's very own farming team, to consult on the vineyard. We are thrilled with the quality of the fruit and are very excited to share these wines with you.
The 2015 vintage is a selection of two-thirds 777 clone pinot noir blended with 115 clone. The result is great structure with ample fruit.
