The Heart Stone Vineyard is a tiny 7 acre vineyard planted on a gentle South slope of limestone and shale. With 8 different clones of Syrah, 4 of Grenache, and one Mourvedre we aim to produce a wine that is both compelling and complex. The high density planting allows the vines to hold only 1 or 2 pounds of fruit each, in turn concentrating the flavors. Saxum's vineyards are all farmed to strict standards. We respect our land and farm it sustainably and therefore no chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used. Everything is done by hand and yields are kept naturally low from the rocky soils and extensive thinning. Because our vine's roots penetrate deep through the fissures in the rock irrigation is rarely needed.
