Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Planted in 2003 on a 6 x 8 foot spacing on 110R rootstock in rows running North to South that allows the fruit to be shaded during the heat of the day. The trellis is a version of Vertical Shoot Position (VSP). There are just 1.4 acres planted to the Wente Clone of Chardonnay. A particular characteristic of this fruit are the many berries of sizes on each cluster, which together bring individual nuances that make this wine.
Production Notes
Whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented
Winemaker Notes
For us it’s all about creating depth and complexity in a clean, fresh and vibrant style that we feel expresses a time and a place. Hand harvested in the cool hours of dawn the fruit is immediately Whole Cluster pressed to tank. After settling the juice is moved to used 400L and 500 L French Oak puncheons where a cool slower fermentation occurs using a myriad of both selected and native yeasts. A small amount of the wine goes through Malo Lactic fermentation.
