Aux Raynauds

With a high concentration of clay soils, this 0.88 acre block represents the best Merlot vineyard block and is dedicated to Alain Raynaud and his family of the Right Bank of Bordeaux. At once a great innovator and a great traditionalist, Doctor Raynaud taught winemaker David Jeffrey much of what he knows of the wines of Bordeaux when he worked at Chateau Quinault l’Enclos. In return, Calluna offers Aux Raynauds as a wine reminiscent of that region – with Merlot French Clone 181 on 420a rootstock, and a bit of Cabernet Franc – but with the signature of Calluna’s unique Chalk Hill soils.

The 2015 Merlot “Aux Raynauds” will be released to our mailing list in March 2018.
