About this wine

這款GSM是以4號營地1400英畝的土地其中以小區250英畝的葡萄, 葡萄園在2003年的收穫中生產出第一批作物,該地的溫暖氣候和粘土壤土顯示生產完全成熟水果的巨大潛力。
如果要找加州最好的精品葡萄酒,Santa Barbara就是秘密基地之一,(Santa Ynez和Santa Maria Valleys)周圍地區有超過150家精品酒莊,主要種植生產酒體健壯的世界級羅納葡萄品種(歌海娜,西拉,佩蒂西拉,黑比諾等)。然而加州外區域要從Santa Inez Valley取得葡萄酒一直很困難,因為他們近70%的葡萄酒已被葡萄酒釀酒俱樂部訂購,主要供應南加州的葡萄酒愛好者。這是這些葡萄酒首次在台灣上市。
不同於美洲西海岸的大部分山脈是南北向,Santa Ynez聖伊內斯山脈是東西向的。因此Santa Ynez和Santa Maria Valleys不僅沒有受到海洋的保護,而且聖巴巴拉的大部分葡萄酒都是在這裡成長,它們通向太平洋海岸線的山谷一年中大部分時間都很冷,早上經常在霧中浸泡,下午則被微風吹過。然而當你向內陸移動時,溫度會升高,但是潮濕多風的海洋影響甚至會持續到最深的峽谷。
這種良好的土壤條件,艱難的大風天氣,潮濕的霧氣和不同高度的組合,為生產具有優良品質和品味的大膽葡萄酒提供了理想的環境。StandingSun葡萄酒是Santa Inez Valley地區葡萄酒的典範。

Camp Four Vineyard is on a 1,400-acre parcel of land with 250-acres planted. The vineyard produced its first crop in the harvest of 2003. The warmer climates and clay-loam soils of this site shows great potential for producing fully ripened, mature fruit.

Santa Inez Valley – Standing Sun Wines
One of the best kept “secrets” of California wines is the area around Santa Barbara (the Santa Ynez and Santa Maria Valleys); more than 150 boutique wineries produce many robust, world class Rhone varietals (Grenache, Syrah, Petit Syrah, Pinot Noir among others). However, obtaining wines from the Santa Inez Valley outside of California has been difficult, as nearly 70% of their wine production already has been subscribed through the wineries wine clubs, primarily to wine lovers in Southern California. This is the first time these wines have been available to Taiwan.
Unlike most of the mountain ranges on the West Coast of the Americas, which run north to south, the Santa Ynez Mountains align east to west. So rather than being protected from the sea, the Santa Ynez and Santa Maria Valleys, where most of Santa Barbara’s wine grapes are grown, open onto the Pacific Ocean. The coastline valleys can be quite cold most of the year, often soaked in fog in the mornings and whipped by breeze in the afternoon. However, temperatures creep higher as you move inland, yet that wet and windy ocean influence persists even into the deepest canyons.
This combination of great soil conditions, difficult, windy weather, moisture laden fog, and varying elevations, provide the ideal environment for the production of bold wines with great character and taste. Standing Sun Wines are a great example of wines from this area.

  • 莊        園:Camp 4 Vineyard, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara County

Santa Ynez Valley葡萄酒由於產量相對較低,因此難以在南加州以外地區獲得,並且很少出口到國際市場。

(Santa Ynez Valley wines are difficult to obtain outside of Southern California, due to their   relatively low production quantities, and are rarely exported internationally.)

  • 產  區:Santa Barbara County, California
  • 葡萄品種:40% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 25% Mourvedre
  • 酒精濃度:15.6%
風味搭配
  • 品酒筆記:玻璃瓶中隨處飄出誘人性感香味,保存茴香、藍莓的醉人香氣,在口感上希格那的酸度和亮度與西拉的香料和礦物質無盡地調情,而Mourvedre則帶來了深度,結構和最微小的遊戲性,從而引發了這種非常水果味,自由奔放的味道 。
  • 試飲溫度:10°C~12°C
  • 佐餐食物:非常適合搭配搭配各种红肉,蘑菇,金槍魚以及牡蠣,沙拉和扇貝料理
  • Tasting Notes: Seductive and sexy with intoxicating aromas of incense, anise & blueberry preserves that waft   ever so casually from the glass. On the palate, the acidity and brightness of the Grenache flirt shamelessly   with the spice and minerality of the Syrah, while the Mourvedre lends depth, structure and the slightest   bit of game-y earthiness that grounds this otherwise very fruit driven, free-spirited intoxicating blend.
  • Pairings: Pairs well with a variety of red meats, mushrooms, tuna, as well as oysters, salads, and scallops
