Winemaking

The fruit for our Sonoma County Chardonnay comes from our estate vineyards in Sonoma Valley and Russian River Valley, as well as from growers in Sonoma County’s other top appellations, including Carneros and Alexander Valley. Each carefully selected vineyard contributes distinctive and individual qualities to the finished wine.

The 2016 harvest began mid-August during a pattern of warm sunny days cooled by foggy mornings and breezy afternoons. The early months of the year were very mild with little rain allowing the vines to progress steadily and uneventfully. Yields throughout the region were slightly below average but moderate weather starting in early summer gave the fruit plenty of time to develop great color and flavor, resulting in a beautifully balanced Chardonnay.

To preserve the delicate flavors, aromas and acidity, the grapes are picked at night and in the very early morning hours. Grapes are then immediately pressed whole cluster and fermented in different lots. The wine undergoes partial malolactic fermentation and is aged for six months in French oak barrels. During aging, bâtonage (stirring the lees by hand) is performed to achieve
complexity and the rich mouthfeel.
