Vineyard Notes
Record-breaking winter rainfall kicked off the season, filling the water table to capacity and replenishing soils. A mild spring brought bud break at the normal time, and vintners reported small berries with excellent color. A hot summer culminated in a Labor Day weekend heat wave, where the grapes endured the heat and once cooler weather arrived, fruit was able to mature at a gradual pace. At harvest, the fruit came in with excellent color, pronounced flavors and high quality across varieties.
Production Notes
The juice was fermented with active yeasts and aged for 18 months in 60% new French oak. It underwent full malolatctic fermentation, which balances the wines inherent acidity and lends a luscious texture on the palate. Delicious now and will age 8-10 years with proper storage.
Tasting Notes
Brilliant and clear, this wine shines with a golden-straw hue. Bright citrus and rich tropical fruits take center stage on the nose—lemon curd, guava, pineapple—in addition to green apple, vanilla, and a whisper of nutmeg. True to style, this Chardonnay holds a gorgeous tension of ripe California fruit balanced by a Burgundian-style minerality. The palate reveals a round, creamy mouthfeel accented by apricot, pineapple, sweet oak, and wet stone with a clean, mineral-driven finish.
Food Pairing Notes
he fresh, vibrant qualities of this wine make it an excellent partner for richer seafood dishes like Crispy Soft-Shell Crab or Scallops in Citrus Cream Sauce. A triple cream cheese such as Brillat-Savarin or Epoisses de Bourgogne would be an effortlessly beautiful match.
