Winemaker's Notes:

It is a closely held belief here that great white wine starts with extreme care in the pressing. With Chardonnay this is especially critical as there are flavors and colors in the skin of the fruit that will diminish quality. Every effort is made to extract flavor without color or harshness. Careful pressing also enhances ageabilty of the final wine. We barrel ferment with a combination of selected yeast and in most years do a partial malolactic ferment. The wine is aged in barrel for 7-9 months, and subsequently aged in stainless with its yeast lees in order to integrate oak flavor and fill the middle palate.

Tasting Notes:

We have been very fortunate to have had a string of great Chardonnay vintages beginning in 2006. This 2009 is a pale greenish gold. It has strong pear and apple aromas along with baking bread and a hint of orange peel. There is a subtle barrel spice and a flinty minerality that announces its breeding. Flavors in the mouth follow with almond and dried hay supporting the fruit. The texture is medium bodied with great length. This wine will reach a youthful peak during 2012.
