DUJAC WINEMAKER CONSULTS ON SANTA MARIA PROJECT
Presqu’ile is relatively new to the wine scene when it comes to California wineries, but they have already established themself as one of the great producers of Santa Barbera. They are located in a beautiful cool pocket of Santa Maria Valley, and specialize in producing elegant styles of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay along with a little bit of Syrah. The name Presqu’ile actually means “almost an island” in Creole, and represents an area of rich family history on the Gulf coast where the Murphy family used to gather until Hurricane Katrina brought an unfortunate end to this piece of family history. The legacy lives on, however, in the lovely wines produced at the Presqu’ile Winery, a combination of effort from the Murphy family and Jeremy Seysess, the winemaker for the famous estate Domaine Dujac in Burgundy. And anytime someone of this caliber from Burgundy is involved in the project, the wines are worth noticing. Most of the fruit is estate grown, with some also being sourced from top vineyard sites in Santa Maria Valley, already known for being a spectacular region for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Presqu’ile is the definition of a small producer, making only about 8,000 cases a year, with the focus being on making wines of varietal that are reminiscent of Burgundy with a kiss of California style.The wines are relatively low alcohol, which allows the pretty, tart fruit to shine through while still giving you a little bit more body than your average Burgundy. Overall, these wines are dressed for success, and both Walden and I were highly impressed when we tasted them. It’s going to be pretty hard to find other wines from Santa Maria that drink this well at this price point, so these are absolutely wines worth grabbing and either drinking now or later. - MVT
