Deep beneath the earth, the decades-long story of this Chardonnay takes shape. Roots stretch far and wide, buffering against drought, rain, and occasional cold. In this hot and dry valley, the knotted trunks and twisted arms faithfully deliver exceptional consistency and quality fruit vintage after vintage.
Above average growing degree days in the spring contributed to an early budbreak. Cooler days and evenings arrived in August, which slowed down the ripening of the grapes and allowed for greater flavour development while retaining freshness and acidity.
