Product Description:

The 2016 vintage opens with bright melon, citrus blossom and honeysuckle aromatics, followed by notes of lightly toasted hazelnuts and an amazing minerality. Rounded and silky on the palate, flavors of ripe melon and citrus oil are underscored by juicy fruit and mouthwatering acidity. Subtle toasted oak notes and a hint of anise spice add warmth and richness to the long, focused finish. The 2016 growing season started out with a mild January followed by a warm and dry February. Budbreak was early but the arrival of much-needed rains in March slowed things down. Spring brought moderate weather with very little frost but spots of rain during bloom made yields variable. Variability continued to be a factor through summer with big swings in temperature. In August, mild days were followed by cool nights and foggy mornings—perfect for slow ripening our Chardonnay. We began harvesting our earliest blocks in late August. With moderate temperatures in September, we were able to steadily bring the rest of the fruit and finished exactly a month later.
