Varietal - Petite Sirah

We have been crafting Petite Sirah from our Jardine Vineyard since 1999. Petite Sirah was one of our first choices to plant in Paso Robles and we quickly realized its potential. Since then, we have increased our focus on this exciting varietal.

We recommend purchasing ice packs when shipping wine during the hot summer months.

About

The name Fore relates to our 20 year old Jardine Vineyard, where golf balls are often found from the nearby golf course. Planted in well-drained soils, the vines are very low yielding, resulting in a wine of high concentration.

The grapes for this wine were handpicked in early October and sorted for quality in the vineyard. The fruit was then fermented in small fermenters before undergoing malolactic fermentation and aging in selected tight-grained French oak barrels. This limited lot was then gently racked throughout the aging process for natural clarification until it was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
