The 2016 growing season was another early one, however it was a bigger harvest than the miniscule 2015 vintage. The vintage represents Fulcrum’s 11th and one that shows how the abundant sunshine in California can deliver ripe Pinot Noirs that deliver balance and complexity.
Each 2016 Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurztraminer has a distinct personality and impact. It is a testament to the dedicated growers we work with. Gap’s Crown, Durell, Donnelly Creek, Wildcat Mountain, Husch and Brosseau vineyards are amongst the finest in the world. We are pleased to present our wines that will allow you to experience the unique qualities of each.
