in the cellar : Our first vintage since 1999 not using the same Chardonnay sites. First Substantial fruit from our new site was added to this 2018 Unwooded Chardonnay. It immediately made a contribution to the variation and complexity of this final blend. Overall even with the drought, the chardonnay vineyards produced beautiful ripe and healthy fruit.

During the crushing and fermentation kept at low temperatures. Fermentation is only done in stainless steel tanks, no wood is added. We have the wine on the lees for up to 3 months depending on the vintage.
