Our winemaking processes honor our exceptional fruit with meticulous winemaking that reveals the distinctive varietal personality of the grapes. Whites are cold-fermented to retain their bright, vibrant character, while Reds undergo cold-soaking for optimum extraction of color, flavor and tannin, followed by small-barrel fermentation and aging in oak barrels selected for their type of oak, level of toast and age. To determine the best blends, we keep each small vineyard lot separate throughout the entire winemaking process. This allows us to note the effect of clone, soil, microclimate and growing season on the developing wine from each vineyard parcel. We then blend the individual barrel lots to create wines that are the best expression of their terroir.
From its enticing aromas to its lingering finish, our Chardonnay brims with delicious fruit expression. Swirl the wine in the glass to fully release the aromas; you’ll find them reminiscent of citrus, apple, pear and nectarine, with just a hint of floral and spice. These fruit notes reappear on the palate, enhanced by crisp, balanced acidity and a silky texture.
