The Kiser vineyard sits in the heart of Sonoma Valley, just 5 miles away from the SCRIBE property. Set on a combination of Zamora and Huichica loam soils, this property was originally planted with vines in the 1970s. These original plantings included cuttings of "Shot Wente" clone Chardonnay, a cultivar developed in California back in the early 1900s.
2021 meteorological data: A dry winter with below-average rainfall and a cool start to spring kept the vines dormant late into March. The spring months stayed dry and cool, slowing shoot growth and contributing to low yields and small berries. Once under full canopy later in the season, the fruit developed evenly with concentrated flavor, color and texture. Harvest began on August 13th with favorable, temperate weather throughout the picking season.
soil type: Huichica loam, volcanic tuff
21.9 °Bx | pH 3.37 | TA 6.6 g/L | 12.5 % alc.
