“This is such a beautiful wine, …… it's lemony with a great core of juicy acidity around grainy, gravelly texture and minerality. With an exotic edge, it finishes elegantly in lemon peel and orange blossom.” - Wine Enthusiast 

BACKGROUND
“This is our first single vineyard Chardonnay from this historic vineyard. We’ve enjoyed a wonderful relationship with the Rochioli family for years and are excited to produce this elegant and fruit-driven wine from our neighbor’s vineyard on Westside Road. We gently press whole clusters for phenolic delicacy. Native yeast and full native malolactic fermentation take place in barrel, with sur lies bâtonnage. After aging 20 months in 23% new François Frères French oak barrels, this Chardonnay was fined and settled in tank following the next harvest. It was then bottled without filtration.” - Winemaker, David Ramey
