Keith and Kimberly welcome Ginny Lambrix, Winemaker at Truett Hurst Vineyards

Enjoy the Show (part 4 of 4)

 

Truett hurst Winemaker Ginny Lambrix: Winemaking begins with an understanding of the vineyard and allows for translation of its unique character ginny
through to the bottle. It requires spending a lot of time with the grower, the vineyard and the wine, to try and really understand what each should express in the finished wine.  Truett Hurst allows me to farm biodynamically and make wine. Usually viticulture (the growing of grapes) and winemaking are considered separate jobs. I got lucky – when I was looking to make the transition from viticulture to both winemaking and grape growing, Paul Dolan – a friend and fellow biodynamic practitioner- asked if I would be interested in working on the Truett Hurst project. I still have to pinch myself to believe its real.

Truet Hurst Vineyards: While the formation of the Truett Hurst partnership began in November of 2007, the founding partners worked together at Fetzer Winery years before. At that time, Paul Dolan was Director of Winemaking and hired Phil Hurst, fresh from UC Davis, to work as one of the winemakers. Years later, Phil would hire Paul’s son, Heath, right out of college to work for him. Thirty years after that first meeting, Paul, Heath, Phil and Sylvia Hurst formed a partnership in the Dry Creek Valley. Their vision: create world class wines using biodynamic farming principles. To complete that vision, Mark De Meulanaere and Virginia Lambrix were brought in.

The wines we will be opening are ….

Truett Hurst Russian River Valley 2012 Chardonnay

Truett Hurst Sonoma County Old Vine 2012 Luci Zinfandel

Truett Hurst Sonoma County Old Vine Red Rooster Zinfandel

Wikipedia Wine Festival Description: Annual wine festivals celebrate viticulture and usually occur after the harvest of the grapes which mainly is at the end of September until well into October. They are common in most wine regions around the world and are to be considered in the tradition of other harvest festivals. The oldest known cultivation of wine took place in the ancient Egypt. The knowledge was passed on from there along the mediterreanen sea where over the nowaday territories of IsraelTurkeyGreece it reached Etruria and Rome. Although already the Egyptians god Osiris was dedicated to wine the oldest historically documented wine festivals can be traced back to the Greek celebrations for their wine god Dionysos. Until the very day drinking wine in company is the center of all wine festivals. It usually goes along with regional foods and music.

​​​​​​​Steve McIntyre intimately understands what makes the Santa Lucia Highlands a unique treasure in the world of fine wine.  Being that rare combination
of winegrower and winemaker, Steve earned degrees in both viticulture and enology, graduating from CSU Fresno with a Masters in Enology. He put both disciplines into practice here long before the place, in no small part due to his efforts, became known to wine lovers and critics the world over. Steve knows this collection of storied vineyards like no other. After years as a winemaker at Smith & Hook, a neighboring winery in the Highlands, he purchased an adjacent 80-acre vineyard parcel in 1987 that would eventually became McIntyre Vineyards, producing wine under his family name.

McIntyre Vineyards

The Santa Lucia Highlands AVA has rapidly become a legend in the wine world, producing some of the most highly acclaimed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the market today. As iconic as the AVA itself, winegrower Steve McIntyre farms this ancient alluvial soil to grow some of the finest grapes in the Highlands.

2012 Estate Chardonnay, 25th Anniversary, Santa Lucia Highlands. $28.00

This vintage marks our 25th year farming this extraordinary property! Pale gold in the glass, like warm autumn sunshine, this wine embodies the essence of the Santa Lucia Highlands with its aromas of baked golden apples, ripe pears, butterscotch and lemon cream pie. There’s a whiff of fresh out of the fryer donuts, too, along with a faint hint of flint from the new oak. In the mouth, it has ample minerality, persistently pleasant acidity, delightful flavors of lemon bars, pear crème brulee, pineapple-carrot cake and lemon meringue pie. Finishes with lively intensity, leaving a pleasant hazelnuttiness in its wake. This wine is a youngster, for sure. Best in mid 2014 through 2024, and beyond. Pair with butternut squash risotto, toasted walnuts and a drizzle of lemon olive oil.

2012 Estate Pinot Noir, 25th Anniversary, Santa Lucia Highlands, $36.00

This vintage marks our 25th year farming this extraordinary estate. The results of Mother Nature’s handiwork are fully expressed in this opulent wine. This dense, aromatic Pinot provides plenty of vibrant ripe plum, wild cherry and blackberry aromas with undertones of fragrant spice. The wine contains a silky middle palette with soft, earthy tannins and a focused but lingering finish that begs for just one more mouthful. I am proud to say this might be our best Pinot from the Highlands yet!

Among the prestigious wineries for which they have grown fruit, are Williams Selyem, Morgan, Artesa, Jordan, Bernardus, MacRostie and Joseph Phelps. As founding members of the Monterey Wine Company, they have also produced wines for Bonny Doon, Caymus, The Hess Collection, Hahn Estates and many others.

From our vineyards in the heart of the Santa Lucia Highlands and the Arroyo Seco AVA, we present a delightful – and very limited – selection of handcrafted estate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Merlot and a very special bottling of bubbly. We look forward to helping you create many happy McIntyre memories!​
