Chardonnay 100%

41% from four Dutton Ranches Vineyards (Perry, Mengle, Sebastopol & Mill Station); 19% Martinelli’s Laughlin Road Vineyard; 15% from four Rochioli Vineyards (Allen, Mid-40, River & Hill); 13% Forchini; 11% Westside Farms; 1% Hyde Robert Young

These are cool sites, with low vigor soil like Goldridge Loam, planted between 1969 and 2006. Some vineyards are planted to a larger-clustered clone—typically, UC Davis clone 4— or they might be a younger planting of a Wente or Dijon selection.

2014 was a classic vintage. A mild winter and spring caused an early bud break followed by consistent temperatures throughout the summer promoting even ripening.

Whole clusters are pressed for phenolic delicacy. Native-yeast and full native malolactic fermentation take place in barrel, with sur lies bâtonnage.

After aging 12 months in 13% new French oak barrels (François Frères, Demptos & Taransaud), this Chardonnay is fined for clarity in tank during the following harvest. It was then bottled without filtration in February, 2016.
