This Chardonnay comes from two selected blocks within one vineyard on the third coastal ridge from the ocean, near the town of Seaview. The low-fertility soil and the cool temperature near the Pacific Ocean produce a distinctive Chardonnay. This bottling comes from two blocks within the vineyard both planted to Chardonnay clone Dijon 76, 95 and 96. Harvested at night, the fruit was rigorously hand sorted prior to whole cluster pressing and barrel fermentation with indigenous yeasts.
This wine is delightfully elegant upon release but will continue to gain complexity with bottle age for 3 to 5 years.
