Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of brioche, mandarin, meringue. Flavors of buttered toast, honeysuckle, and lemon curd.
Vineyard Notes
The fruit for this wine comes from a couple of different vineyards. One vineyard sits between 900' and 1200' elevation. Southeast aspect, with 10% grade. Rocky soil comprised of shale, limestone and clay. The other is a similar elevation but is comprised of green stone and quartz and is a Southwest aspect.
Production Notes
Chardonnay was picked early for acidity retention. Grapes were pressed gently and juice was fermented in 2 yr old French oak barrels. Allowed to age for 4 months before spending 2 yrs in tirage.
Winemaker Notes
2016 was quite wet in early spring making conditions challenging in the vineyard. July and August dried out and we saw good ripening and flavor development in both reds and whites. Merlot, Cab Franc and Chardonnay stood out.
