The Growing Season

2017 marked the end of a five year drought as the season began with rainfall that refilled reservoirs and replenished soils. Harvest started early at a normal pace in many regions, and then progressed rapidly during a heat wave in late August and early September. Temperatures cooled mid-September, slowing the harvest pace. Many regions are reported reduced yields due to the heat spell, but overall vintners confident in the strong quality for the 2017 vintage.

The Winemaking Process

After night harvest, we gently whole-cluster press our Chardonnay grapes and put the free run juice in new French oak barrels to undergo 100% barrel fermentation. Here we depart from convention by performing a simultaneous primary and malolactic fermentation which helps to preserve the delicate floral aromas, producing a fresh and clean expression of Chardonnay. Post fermentation, the wine spends nine months sur-lie aging in French oak barrels, with stirring of the yeast lees adding layers of texture.

Tasting Note

Vibrant pale gold in color, with delicate aromas of pear, apple and stone fruit. On the palate, the mouth is medium bodied with layers of white peach, toasted nuts and fresh crème and honey. The wine finishes gracefully and invites you back for another glass.
