Made exclusively using grapes from our own acclaimed Carneros estate vineyard, which we have been farming for more than four decades, this Chardonnay leads with vibrant aromas of cotton, vanilla and jasmine flower. On the palate, balanced acidity gives the wine a smooth mouthfeel with a refreshing green apple finish.

Production Notes
2018 was a mild year across the board. The average temperatures were below normal providing a warm and extended growing season without the heat spikes we have experienced in recent years. Instead of rushing to harvest we let fruit naturally mature all the way to November in some blocks. The crop was also quite large with bigger than usual clusters that despite thinning of the fruit also pushed back the harvest dates. Overall, the quality and quantity is very high which is a winning combination that we have not seen since 2012 or maybe even 2007.
