Winemaker Notes
Our 2014 Chardonnay is dynamic with great length, mouthfeel, and nuance. Notes of roasted co?ee bean, candied lemon, honeysuckle and hints of confection stimulate the senses. On the palate this wine is sweet and sophisticated with an initial impression of lemon honey and a bold acidity. Notes of sweet brioche, toasted meringue and hazelnut are showcased on the palate, finishing with subtle hints of soft minerality and sweetness.

Production Notes
Our Chardonnay was hand harvested in the cool morning hours to preserve flavor and aromatics. The 2014 features our favorite clones: the Wente, Clone 4 and Mt. Eden. The juice was barrel fermented and aged for 18 months in 80% new French oak barrels. To add richness and complexity to the wine, we stirred the lees every two weeks. It was then bottled in April of 2016.
Vineyard Notes
2014 was the third consecutive abundant vintage in the Sta. Rita Hills. An early bud break and warm growing season led to the earliest harvest to date. Grape clusters had larger than average berry size that achieved optimal ripeness within a shortened time translating into rich flavors. We hand harvested the grapes between August 19th and October 10th, 2014.
