Product Description:

"Chardonnay clones 17 (Robert Young Clone), 4 (Wente Clone) and 124 (Dijon), grown in our estate vineyards, were the primary source for this wine. We fermented 2/3 of the Chardonnay in barrels and 1/3 in stainless steel tanks. After barrel fermentation, the wine was periodically lees stirred and barrel-aged for 10 months to give it its rich texture. The tank-fermented portion added crisp fruit characters and brighter acidity. 2013 was another perfect vintage out here in the Dunnigan Hills AVA. Cool nights and hot days maximized ripeness and intensity. We experienced no rain to spoil the grapes, and enjoyed a long hang time to maximize avor." Winery
