Winemaker's Notes:

VINEYARDS: Grapes for this Chardonnay were harvested off our Hillside Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation, which is located in the Central Coast of California. The pronounced slope of the vineyard with well-drained soils and eastern exposure allows us to select blocks for varying levels of maturity over multiple dates. The foundation of this wine is truly made in the Vineyard. WINEMAKING: Harvested with the chill of October nights these grapes were delivered direct to press with no crushing. After 48 hours of cold settling the juice was clean racked into three component programs. Program one, cold (48o F.) slow stainless steel tank fermentation to emphasize the fruit and acidity. Program two, small barrel fermentation for a relatively warm (65o F.) with lees aging and secondary malo-Lactic fermentation. Program three, middle road stainless program with French Oak, lees stirring and temperatures ranging from 54o – 60o F. to control the rate of fermentation and flavor development. From these three programs the final blend was assembled reflecting 80% aged on oak with 10% fermented in small barrels,malo-lactic fermentation 33% completed, and 20% stainless steel only, non-oaked. TASTING NOTES: Youthful notes of lemon and honeysuckle are layered over ripe melon, nutmeg, and clove. The perception of sweetness is derived from fruit ripeness, aging on regularly stirred yeast lees in the presence of aged French Oak. 2012 CHARDONNAY Appellation: Santa Lucia Highlands Vineyard: Poppy Hillside Grapes: 98% Chardonnay & 2% Gewurztraminer Harvest date: October 9th-12th, 2012 Alcohol: 13.5 TA: 0.69 pH: 3.52
