Our Clone Series was created to highlight the different nuances that each Pinot Noir clone presents. What do we mean by “clone”? Grapevines in general, and Pinot Noir vines, are genetically unstable and can mutate over time. Each grape variety is made up of many subtypes, called clones. These clones can result in different flavors, intensity, color, etc. At Scheid Vineyards, we grow 20 different clones of Pinot Noir. Clone 115 is one of the Dijon clones and we prize it for the exotic red fruit and heady aromas it exhibits. This single clone, single vineyard bottling is a true reflection of the terroir of our Riverview Vineyard as well as the exquisite Dijon clone 115.  This vintage has lifted aromas of cherry, raspberry and currant with subtle leather and earth notes. Beautifully balanced, this medium-bodied wine has a subtle oak influence and silky long finish.

Vineyard
Our Riverview Vineyard is located two miles southeast of Soledad and adjacent to the Pinnacles National Park on a bench overlooking the Salinas River. The bench location aids in creating excellent air flow and the southwestern exposure maximizes available sunlight. Morning fog and afternoon winds from the Monterey Bay’s marine influence create a true Region I climate, allowing the fruit to ripen slowly and evenly. Riverview Vineyard is a premier vineyard site with ideal attributes for ultra-premium Pinot Noir.
Varietal Composition
100% Pinot Noir
Winemaking
The grapes were handpicked in the early morning hours at the peak of ripeness and destemmed into small fermentation bins. The juice was then fermented in small lots in open top fermenters and punched down daily at the height of fermentation to gently increase extraction of color and phenolic compounds. The must was drained, pressed to stainless steel tanks and, after settling the heavy solids, the juice was racked clean to barrels for secondary fermentation and storage. Aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration to preserve the delicate notes and mouthfeel.
