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.
“Our 2015 Chardonnay is sourced from a vineyard in the southern part of the Napa Valley, close to the
cooling influences of the San Pablo Bay. Primary fermentation in stainless steel followed by malolactic
fermentation in neutral oak barrels allows the classic texture of this varietal to shine while preserving the
wines natural acidity. Aromatics of Meyer lemon, candied orange peel, white flowers and oyster shell
marry with a fleshy, well-textured palate."
