This singular site has proven itself to produce distinctive Chardonnay. The alluvial soil, derived from deposits of the Santa Ynez River, provides everything needed to grow balanced vines with exceptional purity and elegance.
Aged for 14 months in French Oak barrels (35% new).
Gently whole cluster pressing and barrel fermentation in French Oak
Hazelnut, Wet Rocks, Lemon Confit
Citrus, toasted hazelnut and white flowers
Very expressive, displaying lemon confit and wet rocks while a touch of hazelnut adds charm. A full palate balanced by crisp acidity, bright, detailed and nuanced, this wine has a lot going on aromatically, while the minerally stone fruits on the palate are racy with a long finish.
