2014 TERCERO "CAMP 4 VINEYARD" SANTA YNEZ VALLEY MARSANNE
Tercero is the labor of love of Larry Schaffer, who had career in publishing before shifting gears completely to wine. He began his new career first as Enologist for Fess Parker Winery, a well-respected winery in the Santa Ynez Valley, and then took the plunge to begin making his own wines under his Tercero label. Larry works with organic grapes and follows minimal internention winemaking methods to craft unique, expressive wines that display lots of terroir and vintage character.
Winemaker's Notes: "The 2014 Grenache Blanc is my 9th release of this variety, and arguably my best to date! It is a blend of fruit from two distinctly different vineyards - Camp 4 in eastern Santa Ynez and El Camino Real in Los Olivos. Each brings something different to the blend that creates a 'whole' that is greater than the sum of its parts. Each lot was aged in older French oak barrels for 15 months prior to bottling, and each lot brought something different to the blend. The Camp 4 fruit tends to be a bit bolder and riper, bringing beautiful aromatics and body to the final blend; the El Camino Real fruit is picked earlier and brings a zingy acidic backbone and wonderful aromatics to the final blend. This is a wine that is drinking wonderfully now but will truly continue to evolve and develop for years to come."
