Made exclusively using grapes from our own acclaimed Carneros estate vineyard, which we have been farming for more than four decades, this Chardonnay is a Clos Du Val favorite. Showing off a beautiful pale straw color, this Estate Chardonnay leads with aromas of bread dough, cotton candy, linen and jasmine flower. This wine is lean, polished and quite elegant. On the finish, you'll find notes of wet stone and alluring mineralities.

Production Notes
The 2017 harvest was the first of its kind following a 5 year drought. The soils and water table had been replenished and the vines took off early in the season and weather patterns were about normal until late August. In early September heat spikes hit the valley and set record or near record temperatures. This caused some vineyards to progress rapidly and show signs of hydration. With plenty of water available most vineyards were heavily irrigated and the temperatures cooled in mid-September to more normal levels. The quantity of grapes was quite low but quality looks to be excellent. A huge wildfire at the end of harvest threatened vines that still had fruit but luckily the vast majority of grapes were already safely in the winery for the year.
