  • Inviting aromas of wild red fruits, hints of spice, and a rustic minerality lead to luscious layers of raspberry, strawberry, floral notes, and pomegranate, surrounded by a subtle structure and a touch of liquorice on the finish. The grapes for this wine were unaffected by the 2017 wine-country fires that took place; however, some of the yield was reduced due to drought and heat spell at the beginning of September. The fruit shows lovely concentration and balance.

Zero Manipulation is the winemaking philosophy employed on all Peterson wines, using the gentlest winemaking techniques possible to maximize flavours, aromas and the original essence of the grapes from the given vineyard and vintage. Fermentation took place spontaneously with natural, indigenous yeasts. The wine was then barrel aged for 22 months in 100% neutral 225-liter barrels, mostly of French origin and of sixth fill up to 12th fill. Bottled without fining or filtration.

Winery

The Tollini Vineyard is located in Mendocino County's Redwood Valley and has been in the Tollini family for three generations, now in the hands of Alvin Tollini. The Zero Manipulation Blend is made predominantly of Carignan, where the vines are traditionally head-trained and dry-farmed. The blocks were originally planted by Alvin Tollini’s father and grandfather, and old-vine, low-yielding Carignan remains from the original plantings produce concentrated, flavoursome fruit. Alvin’s father added to the acreage after he returned from WWII. Alvin planted the Syrah and Grenache using the same time-honoured techniques and sustainable approach, and they add layers of depth, complexity, and balance to the blend. The vines are planted on southwest-facing benches in the Redwood Valley and are cultivated with a meticulously sustainable approach. The only treatment used in the vineyard is sulphur dusting if required, and the vines are harvested by hand.
