Description


 HARVEST & WINEMAKING

These Chardonnay grapes come mostly from Dijon and Wente clones grown in the renowned Carneros District in Napa Valley from such prestigious growers as the Haire vineyard, the Ghisletta vineyard, and the Cunat vineyard in Oak Knoll. Grapes were harvested September 2th through 12th, 2014, with Brix from 22 to 25. Our Chardonnay is hand-harvested, cluster-sorted and whole cluster pressed to preserve the pure varietal characteristics. The creaminess comes from stirring the lees in oak barrels twice each month for 8 months. No secondary malolactic fermentation was allowed.
