2012 Kenneth Volk "Enz Vineyard" Lime Kiln Valley Mourvèdre

SKU #1241541

The little-known Lime Kiln Valley AVA is located 23 miles east of Monterey Bay, in a unique geological setting created by the San Andreas Fault. With soil of decomposed granite and limestone, plus the cooling benefit of the nearby ocean, it's ideally situated to producing bright, lip-smackingly food-friendly Mourvèdre. Seven acres of Mourvèdre was planted at Enz Vineyard back in 1922, and has been dry farmed ever since. Kenneth Volk first got his hands on some of these grapes in 1994, and has been making an elegant wine each year that exudes aromas of of mulberry, blueberry, and savory minerality. Volk is best known as the founder of Wild Horse Winery, and his accolades include Winemaker of the Year by Wine & Spirits magazine.

Additional Information:



- Also called Monastrell and Mataro, Mourvèdre is most famous for the ruby-hued wines of Provence's Bandol region, known for their spicy, gamey, blackberry character, though the grape is grown throughout Provence and the Southern Rhône. Thought to have originated in Spain, it is second only to Grenache in vine acres, with the best examples found in Rioja, Alicante and Penedès.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon.
