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 souvignon and cabernet franc.

Savannah Chanelle Winery is focused on Burgundy varietals, especially the nobleP 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.

Red wines

2013 Pinot Noir - Santa Cruz Mountains, Muns Vineyard  

This 2013 Muns Vineyard Pinot Noir shows the typical minerality that can be found in Santa Cruz Mountains pinot; it also shows off the classic black cherry fruit associated with great Burgundies. Red bing cherries and blackberries are to be found along with oak spices, nutmeg and hints of vanilla. The palate is big and robust, showing off it’s velvety tannins and natural acidity that these mountains are known for. Although you can drink this wine now, it will benefit from further bottle aging as most great wines do.

2010 Pinot Noir, Armagh Vineyard  

This final vintage of the Armagh pinot noir is a bitter-sweet one for us at Savannah Chanelle as we say farewell to this wonderful vineyard. It has proven to be an outstanding producer of fine pinot for many years, and has garnered many accolades for us along the way; and what a vintage to go out on! The 2010 is glorious! It is balanced and structured, aromatic and textured, it is quite simply the best of all the vintages we have offered from this vineyard. Huge amounts of black cherry fruit, hints of cinnamon spice, touches of vanilla and a flourish of earthy tobacco on the finish. I suspect this will go down as one of the classic Savannah Chanelle pinots that we talk about for many years to come.

2011 Syrah, Insider's  

VINEYARD NOTES:Coast View Vineyard is an exceptional site and one that few wine lovers will ever see.  Drive south to the Salinas Valley burg of Chualar, turn left and drive east, over hill and dale, ‘til the road ends at a gate.  Thru the gate, over another mile or so of hill and dale to another, locked gate, and you’re still not there!  And all this way, unless you know exactly where to look, you haven’t even caught a glimpse of the vineyard.  In fact, until you emerge from the dirt track that winds up thru the canyon, pass thru yet another gate, and mount one final ridge, you haven’t a clue what awaits.  Maybe this is for the better, because this site is so spectacular.  It’s one of those sites that could only be planted by a determined visionary, or a lunatic.
