Our Wines

__wines-top

Savannah-Chanelle Vineyards is very fortunate to source fine fruit not only from our historic estate, but also from many of the finest vineyards in California.

Due to the many microclimates of the region, the Santa Cruz Mountains are unique in California – the Burgundy varietals of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grow happily alongside the Bordeaux varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Savannah-Chanelle Winery is focused on Burgundy varietals, especially the noble Pinot Noir grape. Whether from our estate, or from one of our many vineyard partners, Savannah-Chanelle sources only the finest quality fruit for the production our wine.

Estate

2011 Zinfandel- Estate Vineyard  

Beautiful aromatics of raspberries with a hint of peppermint.  There is a slight eathy note that mingles wonderfully with a blackberry undertone.  Black pepper spice and vanilla are subtle characters that come through on the finish once the explosive fruitiness dissipates.

2011 Chardonnay- Estate Vineyard  

The Estate Chardonnay is planted to the rare and difficult to cltivate Mt. Eden clone.  This plant material, brought by Paul Masson from Burgundy's Corton-Charlemagne and shipped around the Horn to San Francisco in the 1860's, turned out to be important beyond its source.  Little did Masson know that he was preserving the world's only example of pre-phylloxera Corton-Charlemagne.  The original vineyard in France died out long ago.

White wines

2013 Pinot Noir- Rose, Central Coast  

After the pinot noir grapes are loaded into the fermentation tank, a portion of the juice is removed, chilled and fermented entirely in stanless steel to maintain it's delicate fruit-floral character.  The skins of the grapes are slightly broken due to the processs of de-stemming releasing some of the color into the juice.  The technical French term is "Saignee", and translates as "to bleed".

2013 Chardonnay- Tondre's Grapefield  

Crisp green apples, tropical fruit, and crème brûlée aromatics also appear on the palate with tutti-frutti berry fruit and a hint of toastiness. The crisp acidity, and creamy mid palate from the extended yeast contact creates a wonderful refreshing mouth-feel.

Red wines

2010 Pinot Noir, Regan Vineyard  

The 2010 is elegant, balanced and shows lush, true Burgundian black cherry Pinot Noir fruit. Subtle oak aromas and flavors are well integrated into the wine and play a supporting rather than dominating role.

This 2008  Syrah offers up classic Rhone aromas of blueberries, cassis and black berries.

2011 Pinot Noir- Muns Vineyard  

This 2011 vintage from the Muns vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains, offers classic pinot noir varietal character: black cherries, red berry fruit and minerality. They are all held together in perfect harmony with the delicate interplay of balanced acidity and soft textured tannins. Hints of vanilla and cinnamon spice linger on the palate all the way to the finish. This is a wine worthy of further aging, yet will pair nicely with your favourite salmon dish.
