Varietal Content: 100% Chardonnay; Cooperage: 20% New French oak, 80% Stainless Steel and 5 months sur lie
Winemaker Notes
This bright and alluring Chardonnay offers abundant layers of citrus, white peach, and melon, as well as hints of honeysuckle. On the palate, lovely pure fruit notes are underscored by crisp acidity and a lovely supple quality from sur lie aging.
Production
In Sonoma County, a warm, dry spring resulted in any early budbreak, while an extended flowering period brought a return to normal yields after three years of abundant crops. With berry weights down, the grapes offered great concentration, while retaining excellent acidity. We had one of our earliest harvests in the past decade, but a light rain in mid-September nourished the vines and provided welcome additional hangtime. Overall, the quality of the fruit was exceptional, with our white wines showing both richness and complexity, and our red grapes displaying a fine balance between elegance and intensity, with gorgeous dark fruit flavors.
