Beautifully poised and shimmering with racy acidity, this enticing Chardonnay draws you in with aromas evocative of honeycomb, Fuji apple, nectarine and sweet citrus. On the palate it is impeccably balanced, with a lush, supple texture that frames the bright citrus and custard flavors as they glide to a silky and energetic finish.
With just 50% of our average rainfall to start the season we took proactive measures in our vineyards, including early suckering and pruning, careful cover crop management and targeted irrigation to ensure healthy vines. Spring and summer brought mild-to-warm temperatures that allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly, resulting in early flavor development at lower Brix with high acidity. To achieve balanced acids with even more flavor development we waited patiently until September 1st to begin our Chardonnay harvest and completed our last Pinot Noir pick on October 2nd. The resulting wines offer ideal ripeness, supple textures and beautifully concentrated flavors.
