Our Anderson Valley Chardonnay is a snapshot of the appellation we call home. Always fresh and bright thanks to the neutral barrels and preservation of natural malic acid, this vintage is no different. The nose displays bright minerality, popping with aromatics of pear and nectarine. The palate is delicate yet zesty, with notes of mandarin and peaches, and a floral finish reminiscent of white roses.

Vineyard Notes
This Chardonnay is a blend of numerous Heritage clones and Dijon selections. Sources include our estate Savoy Vineyard, long recognized as a benchmark vineyard in Anderson Valley, and the vaunted Ferrington Vineyard.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested between August 31st and September 12th at an average of 22.8° Brix, then gently whole-cluster pressed to tank, where it settled for 24 hours. Fermentation occurred in neutral French oak barrels to provide richness and body while showcasing the beautiful fruit. The absence of malolactic fermentation preserves the wine’s freshness and acidity.
