About one mile from Dry Creek, this thirteen-acre vineyard benefits from temperatures, that are a bit cooler than most of the appellation. It makes wine thats very aromatic with nice bright fruit, pear and lemon and a bit of minerality on the finish.
Smoked meat and lees dominate the nose. Ripe but dry, with good creamy mid-palate texture to the flavors of pineapple and vanilla. A hint of burnt-match minerality and a rocky note give firmness to the finish. This was fermented in barrel, with lees stirring and full malolactic fermentation, but got "only" 50% new oak, according to Adam Sbragia.
There's something rustic and spicy and earthy about Dry Creek Chardonnays, but Ed Sbragia manages to lift this wine into opulence. It's pretty oaky, yet the vanilla and honey flavors marry perfectly with the pineapple and pear fruit to produce a wine of great attraction.
