These Chardonnay grapes are mostly Dijon and Wente clone grown in the renowned Carneros District in Napa Valley. We buy fruit from the Haire Vineyard and Ghisletta Vineyard as well as the Cunat Vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Grapes were harvested September 1st through 15th, 2015, with Brix from 23.2 to 25.8 degrees brix. 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.
The grapes for the Napa Valley Chardonnay come from the finest vineyard sites in the best appellations of Napa Valley.
