2022 Ashanta Wines 'Amanecer' Tempranillo

Three and half hours north of Sonoma and nestled along the westside of the MendocinoNational forest, resides the site of the Tempranillo, raised on
talmadge gravelly loam soils of the valley floor. This vineyard is the only known producing vineyard in the AVA, making it the only wine coming from upper Mendocino’s Round Valley.

Sitting at 1,400 ft. elevation, Round Valley is the only Mendocino Valley AVA with a
continental climate rather than a maritime climate. The valley regularly sees 45+ degree diurnal shifts in the summer, with highs nearing triple digits and lows in the mid 50s. To get there, you wind along a steep, narrow one lane roads that contour the middle fork of the Eel River, a 196 mile long river that opens into the Pacific Ocean south of Eureka.
After driving through the steep, mountainous terrain, you’re dropped into a fault block
valley of 25,000 acres of land. Filled with alluvium soils from 2.5 million years ago, the
lower foothills have chaparral vegetation, grassland, scattered Oaks and this unique
vineyard.
Rose de Tempranillo was handpicked by us and an incredible crew during the chilly
dawn. Direct pressed whole cluster into stainless for two weeks, then aged in french
neutral oak for 7 months.
No additions or subtractions. Unfined, unfiltered, zero SO2.
