VINEYARD & HARVEST • Oak Knoll and Carneros AVAs: Marine influences from the San Pablo Bay lend to the lively acidity in the fruit and refreshing citrus character of this wine. •
2022 Vintage: The cool summer in Napa Valley preserved natural acidity and brought out layered complexity in the grapes, while the Fall heat helped the grapes to ripen fully. •
Night Harvest: Grapes were picked at night and delivered early to the winery to maintain integrity in the fruit and fresh fruit flavors. •
Limited malolactic added creaminess and a nice weight to the mid-body.
Estate Vineyards provide the backbone to this expressive Napa Valley Chardonnay. Notes of bright citrus-lemon and green apple are complemented by toasty vanilla and a kiss of minerality from the soil. Barrel fermentation enhances the citrus fruit flavors and balances acidity, while partial malolactic adds body and creamy crème brûlée character to the mid-palate.
