Rhys Vineyards Alesia Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2016
Their estate grown appellation wines are bottled with the “Alesia” designation. These wines showcase a line of estate grown, mountain vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines that offer incredible value and allow them to make an even stricter selection for their Rhys vineyard designated wines. The wine bottled under Alesia is selected to be delicious and earlier drinking but still offer the complex character and balance that their customers have come to expect.
At Rhys Vineyards they aspire to make great Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah from some of California’s most unique and expressive vineyards. This pursuit has lead them to search the state for exciting rocky soils that exist within the mountainous, cool, Coastal climate zone. Over the last 15 years they have developed seven estate vineyards, six in the Santa Cruz Mountains and one in Anderson Valley, each of which is capable of producing uniquely compelling, distinctive, soil driven wine.
