Reserve Chardonnay

The 2010 vintage started with a cool and fairly wet spring that remained mostly frost free. The late rains generated a healthy canopy, but one that required careful management to ensure ripe flavors. The cool spring evolved into an exceptionally cool summer, punctuated by a three day heat spike in August which reduced yields in many varieties. September started out warm and ended the same way, giving us the ripeness we were waiting for, and we began harvesting this Chardonnay on October 4th, and concluded on October 13th. Only 474 cases were produced.
