APPELLATION:Lodi



COMPOSITION:100% Chardonnay



TASTING NOTES



“This wine doesn’t give up its refreshing acidity as it adds plenty of buttery,



toasty oak tones to spice up the vivid crisp apple and pineapple flavors at its



core. It makes for a lively, dry and appetizing drink to enjoy now.”



WINEMAKING



Handcrafted from our family’s vineyard, our Chardonnay is a fusion of style.



From numerous hand pickings throughout the ripening period, our winemakers produce three distinct Chardonnays that are later blended into a final wine just prior to bottling. From a crisp, fruit driven style fermented and aged in stainless steel, to a softer, more round French oak barrel fermented



Chardonnay, our Chardonnay captures the best qualities of each style.



2013 started off slow, but before we knew it, we had grapes! Whites came off the vine a few weeks early, setting the precedent for an unusual harvest. The reds were also on their own schedule, coming into the winery out of their usual order. Fortunately we had exceptional weather with warm days and cool nights to balance this uncommon season, so the fruit couldn’t have been any better
