Three distinct expressions of SCRIBE Chardonnay: our Estate, Skin Fermented and Kiser bottlings.
* 2022 SCRIBE Estate Chardonany
Yuzu, Lemon Verbena, Limestone
Scribe's Estate vineyard on the southwest-facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain in the southern Mayacamas Volcanic Range. For this bottling we harvested Clone 6 and Washington, planted in volcanic tuff and local Huichica Loam soil.
* 2022 SCRIBE Skin Fermented Chardonnay
Bergamot, Ginger, Orange Blossom
A vivid interpretation of California Chardonnay, fermented on the skins for up to 90 days in concrete eggs. This winemaking process adds texture and structure which balance the pronounced flavor and aromatic profile of
the 809 Chardonnay clone.
* 2022 SCRIBE Kiser Chardonnay
Pineapple, Roman Chamomile, Sea Salt
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.
