Chardonnay 2022


Tasting Notes

Aromatic orange and lemon blossom, ripe white peach & beeswax. Fresh exotic citrus, stone fruit and mineral notes. Both fresh and round simultaneously leads to an elegant finish in a classic example of the noble Chardonnay varietal.

Food Pairing

This unoaked Chardonnay makes a delicious pairing with seafoods like shellfish or flaky lighter fish, spring vegetables or lighter sauced pasta dishes.

Tech Details

Complexity from blending different geographical AVAs rather than blending grape types. The Chardonnay comes from the relatively high elevation and cool climate Potter Valley in Mendocino, the Sonoma side of the Carneros AVA and Clarksburg.

The grapes were picked cool at night and cold pressed at the winery in the morning, cold settled over 2 days, then cool fermentation in stainless steel for 27 days. Approximately 4 months of lees contact and judicious battonage when needed. No oak or malolactic fermentation.
