2015 Chardonnay, Tanbark Mill Vineyard
Anderson Valley Estate
“Seamless delicate green. Shows an array of fruits and flowers, generous and subtle, but very ample. The palate is rich with endless complexities, but never heavy. Ageless structure and a dense mouthfeel with real spine. The finish is long, fresh, and elegant.” – Stéphane Vivier
An early bud break, one of the longest flowering periods in years, and a long growing season produced a vintage that shines in quality. Spring started fast and an early bloom was met with a dip in temperature, wind and rains, which slowed the development and reduced yields. The result was a small crop of extremely well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly before an early harvest in August.
