Vineyard Notes: Organically farmed Wente Clone Chardonnay were sourced from the Beto Vineyard in Redwood Valley, Mendocino County.

Vintage Notes: A dry winter with below average rainfall and a cool start to spring kept the vines dormant late into March. The spring months stayed dry and cool, slowing shoot growth and contributing to low yields and small berries. Once under full canopy later in the season, the fruit developed evenly with concentrated flavor, color, and texture. Harvest began on August 13th with favorable, temperate weather throughout the picking season.

Winemaking Notes: 100% destemmed berries fermented in open top stainless steel tanks. Grapes were punched down two times per day throughout fermentation. After 21 days of skin contact, the Chardonnay was pressed. The wine aged in stainless steel for 6 months prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes: Apricot, golden delicious apple, granite
