From the beginning, the wine growing philosophy was modeled on the French tradition infused with a few modern influences: One, the vineyard terroir would be the single most important feature.

Tasting Notes:

A terroir-driven minerality remains the signature of this vineyard, with aromas of crushed stone, lily, hazelnut and sweet pear. Touch¬es of mandarin orange and sweet vanilla complete the elegant bou¬quet. Notes of citrus oils, white peaches and lemon highlight the minerality. Rich and intense, 2005 La Carriere presents wonderful concentration and elegance on the palate. It's bright acidity and minerality will allow it to age well over the next 10 years, much like its Burgundian cousin from Puligny-Montrachet.

French for "The Quarry", the name of this Chardonnay aptly describes the vineyard's rocky soils.

Notes: 100% naturally fermented using native yeast 100% barrel fermented (French oak from selected artisan coopers)
