Winemaker Notes :

2017 was a bit of wild ride. Heavy winter rains brought relief from a multi-year  drought and caused flooding in many low-lying areas. An early bud break and late summer heat hastened the grapes’ ripening. Labor Day weekend was quite warm which helped achieve ideal brix levels. All our grapes were harvested and inside the winery well before the start of the tragic North Bay wildfires.

Chardonnay shows an array of complex fruit tones ranging from pear  and Gravenstein apple to nectarine. The fruit is beautifully complemented with toasted oak, vanilla and hints of Crème Brûlée with a balanced and elegant finish.

James SucklingBright and very primary on the nose with attractive, poached pears. The palate has a very neat and fresh array of pears and melon with a subtly chalky edge. Drink now.
