    Winemaker Notes

    The 2011 vintage was marked by a cool wet spring, a long growing season and a very small crop. The 2011 Serenity is a distinctive proprietary blend that displays fruit forward aromas of citrus, honeysuckle, nectarine and with expressive minerality. The flavors are rich and deep showing white peach, passion fruit, and honeydew melon with a hint of lime. The wine is well balanced, leaving a l ong, clean and well-textured finish, like summer in a glass.

    Blend: 56% Pinot Grigio, 31% Sauvignon Blanc, 13% Gewurztraminer

    About the Vineyard
    Our home ranch on the Westside of High Valley Appellation has been known as "High Serenity Ranch" for over one hundred years, lending the namesake to our expressive proprietary white blend. The Estate vineyard blocks producing fruit for the Serenity are on the valley floor situated 1800' feet above sea level and are comprised of gravelly loam soils. The Estate Vineyard is one of the coldest growing sites within Lake County. The diurnal temperature swings allow for longer hang-time, enhancing flavor development and acid retention in the juice and finished wine.

    The western section of High Valley Appellation holds the magical lands know as High Serenity Ranch. The 2,500 acre former cattle ranch is now home to Brassfield Estate Winery & Vineyard. In 1973, Jerry Brassfield purchased the original 1,600 acres as a cattle ranch and wildlife reserve. While the cattle have gone, the wildlife still remains. Over the next three decades Mr. Brassfield continued acquiring lands. Today, the estate includes both the eastern and the western sections of High Valley as well as ownership of Round Mountain Volcano.

    In 1998, the Brassfield family realized the land’s true destiny was as a world-class wine property. As a result, Brassfield Estate Winery & Vineyard was established. With the new estate vineyards increased production, the winery has grown with additional tank & barrel storage capacity and a state-of-the-art crushing facility.

    Sitting on the northeast side of the Clear Lake appellation, this warm area boasts multiple soil types that allow growers a lot of flexibility and experimentation with grape varieties. While Sauvignon blanc is a mainstay, this zone excels with Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, as well as other less common varieties like Barbera and Tempranillo.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
