The Lemoravo Vineyard is set 400 feet in elevation in the southern hills of the Santa Lucia Highlands. The vineyard is planted among the decomposed granite alluvial fans that make up a series of isolated islands among the bench lands. This site places the vineyard in rugged soils and heavy fog. As a tribute to this land’s history, the name is a three-word portmanteau as a tribute to the region’s former crops: Lemons, Oranges and Avocados.
Tasting notes by Jeff Pisoni: “An homage to the groves of lemons, avocados, and oranges once grown on the same 26 acre site, the 2019 Luli Lemoravo Vineyard Pinot Noir is a beautiful representation of this varietal grown in the southern reaches of the Santa Lucia Highlands. Medium ruby in the glass, this wine boasts a profile of ripe plum and spiced red fruits on the nose. As this wine coats the palate, pure flavors of berry compote, red cherry, rhubarb, and baking spice lead the way before soft, velvety tannin, hints of toasty oak, and focused acidity complete the full sensory experience.”
