One of the world’s most exciting wine regions, Paso Robles is the pinnacle of Central California’s winegrowing region with 11 distinct sub-AVAs. Rolling terrain, varied soils and warm days and cool nights provide exquisite growing conditions to craft award-winning wines. Founded on hard work and self-made prosperity, Robert Hall is a pillar of the vibrant and premier Paso Robles wine region. Our acclaimed winemaker, Don Brady, is the creative force behind our premium wines, cultivating the best vineyards to express the spirit of the valley.
A vivid straw-green color, this wine greets the senses with crisp apple and citrus aromas with hints of pear. In the mouth, the wine exhibits bright fruit flavors of grapefruit, lime and lemongrass that echo the aromas. Refreshingly dry and medium-bodied with a rich crisp acidity, wrapped around a mineral core.
The vineyards’ proximity to the winery is one of the ways we capture aromatics. We open the winery early and pick at night to keep fruit cool.
We use a gentle press cycle to extract juice and fill tanks specially designed to limit oxygen exposure. At
each step, we try to limit oxidation to create a fresh and aromatic wine.
2019 began with a cool start and then above average rainfall. The cool weather protracted bud break and bloom, delaying our growing season. A heat wave in late July accelerated our delayed season with harvest starting approximately 7 days late at the end of August. The weather became more seasonal until several frost events in late September and October created challenges for low elevation areas. Luckily, we saw very little frost damage in our vineyards this season. Overall yield in the vineyard was lower that average. While short and somewhat sporadic, our 2019 vintage is rich in flavor and phenolically dense.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with salads, roasted vegetables and seafood. We especially like it with sea bass and oysters.
