Scribe’s Estate vineyard on the southwest-facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain in the southern Mayacamas Volcanic Range. Clones Robert Young, Washington-15, and Clone 6 are planted in volcanic tuff and Huichica loam soil. We have specific rows in the Robert Young and Clone 6 Chardonnay plantings that are dedicated to our sparkling wine program and farmed for that purpose leaving more leaf coverage to avoid any potential sunburn on the grape skins.
vintage: After much needed, record-breaking winter rains lingered into early Spring, the vines came out of dormancy in mid March. Wet soils and mild temperatures moved the vines through to veraison with ease, before several heat waves jumpstarted an early, quick harvest.
soil type: volcanic ash and huichica loam
Tirage occurred in June of 2017 and was aged on lees until disgorgement on July of 2019.
