These Chardonnay grapes were discovered in several cool climate growing regions in California. Each area has been able to lend unique flavor components and structure to the final blend. Grapes were harvested during the cooler night and morning hours to preserve the fruit’s delicate flavors. After a gentle pressing, the must was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with Burgundian yeasts. A small portion of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation adding a creamy note and softening the mouthfeel.

Harvest Note
The 2018 harvest saw a long growing season with moderate temperatures in the spring and summer. Due to the consistent growing conditions and cool temperatures, the grapes matured slowly yeilding exceptional quality.
