Harvest

The growing season was one of the coolest in recent memory and marked the third year of drought conditions. The summer had rain and cool temperatures during bloom with clouds and fog until nearly 2 p.m. almost all season long. It produced a small, flavorful crop that ripened late. This kept our Estate Chardonnay grape sugars low and acids high, with full flavor development from long ripening, making a bright and well-defi ned wine. Harvest was not completed until October 23.

Vinification

A variety of yeast and malolactic bacteria strains contribute a range of subtle flavor variations. Couple this with the influences of oak barrels of different ages, toast levels, and origins.The results is an intriguingly complex chardonnay experience.
