The grapes for this Chardonnay are sourced from a vineyard in the southern part of the Napa Valley, close to the cooling influences of the San Pablo Bay. An early bud break, wet spring soils, and a long growing season produced a vintage with excellent quality. A wet spring started fast and rapid growth was met with average summer temperatures, which slowed development and reduced yields. The result was a moderate crop of well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly before an early harvest.
Primary fermentation in stainless steel followed by malolactic fermentation in 20% new and 80% neutral oak barrels.
