Tasting Notes

Encouraging malolactic fermentation added additional character, and in the glass the wine is both creamy and crisp, with abundant fruit character, mineral, and toasty oak flavors. Enjoy over the next one to three years.

Estate Chardonnay

The 2012 vintage started off warm and dry, with little to no frost. By midsummer people were beginning to whisper about how perfect the growing season was going. Rain-free warm days and cool nights were the rule, with no storms or heat spikes, each and every day. The real cheering began when we finally started picking the fruit, beginning on September 6th, a full sixteen days earlier than the year before, which feels like eons at harvest time. We finished picking the last of our Chalk Hill fruit on October 5th under ideal conditions.
