A perfect Mourvèdre in our opinion. Not anything but perfectly ripe, rich but dynamic, tense but forgiving and totally crushable. It's a wine that truly shows off the quality of the mourvedre grape as a candidate for #1 in Santa Barbara. Thanks to the great farming at Kaerskov and the impeccably delicate winemaking by Crosby at Entity of Delight - we're in love.
KÆRSKOV Vineyard is situated in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley in the Los Olivos District AVA. The vineyard sits partially on top of an ancient riverbank high above the Alamo Pintado creek bed. The land is a nice mix of limestone hillsides and river stone flatlands along Alamo Pintado Creek which creates great drainage with rich nutrients.
Warm air flows from the San Rafael range to the east and cool air from the Pacific Ocean in the west, making it an ideal climate for our Rhone varietals.
KÆRSKOV Vineyard aim to grow some of the best grapes in the Santa Ynes Valley for our winery clients. Grower and winemaker Ryan Carr planted the vineyard in 2013 with 6’x3’ making it 2420 vines per acre “high-density”. We have planted this vineyard with 3 clones of Syrah, 2 clones of Grenache, Mourvèdre 04, and Viognier 01.
