Producer Note

First released in 1989, Lockwood Vineyard was developed under the belief that world class estate produced wines are attainable through ideal vineyard location and quality winemaking. Lockwood Vineyard's founders, Paul Toeppen, Phil Johnson and Butch Lindley, who have cumulative vineyard management experience of over 90 years, first planted the large 1,850 acre San Lucas Vineyard in 1981 after concluding that the parcel was perfect for growing premium grapes. The vineyard is in a remote area nestled at the base of the Santa Lucia mountain range, in Monterey County, and is one of the largest premium estate vineyards in the world. Under the new ownership of Boisset Family Estates, Lockwood Vineyard continues to be devoted to producing high quality estate grown wines.

Vintage

A wet winter was followed by a steady spring and cool August temperatures, before a heat spike in early September. The long and even growing season created nearperfect ripening conditions in 2017, resulting in balanced acidity and concentrated flavours.

Vineyard

The 2017 vintage was grown across the Central Coast, one of the most diverse and climatically cool grape growing regions in California The soils are made up of crushed fossilised seashells similar to chalk and limestone.

Winemaking

The grapes were selectively harvested during the cool of the night. Cool fermented in 100% stainless steel in order to obtain a fresh and fruit-driven style, the wine was also matured on its fine lees with weekly stirring to add texture and complexity. Made in an unoaked style to maintain the purity of fruit.

Tasting Note

The 2017 shows delightful aromatics of delicate white flowers, fresh green apple and notes of caramel. Clean flavours of apricot and pear are balanced by hint of key lime and lively mineral notes, with a creamy texture and supple mouthfeel, the crisp acidity leads to a long finish.

Serving Suggestion
