Wine Maker Notes
This Chardonnay was naturally fermented, unfined andunfiltered. It is a blend of six different clones of Chardonnay (76, 95, Wente, Hyde, Rued, and Robert Young) that each bring their own characteristics to this multifaceted wine. Despite its long aging process in 70% new French Oak, the wine reaches a great balance due to a lot of stirring, which gives it a California Meursault feel. This wine brings elegance and finesse into a great traditional California Chardonnay.
