* PINEAPPLE * SEA SPRAY * ORANGE ZEST *
A study of our favorite clone of Chardonnay from our estate vineyard. This wine is fermented in a combination of concrete and stainless steel and is aged on its lees for 5 months prior to bottling for complexity and body. We arrest malolactic fermentation to preserve a fresh, vibrant character.
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
22.7 °Bx | pH 3.29 | TA 7.3 g/L | 12.5% alc.
