Winemaker Kent Jarman Notes
Sustainable farming and meticulous grape selection form the core of our winemaking philosophy. The 2008 harvest blessed us with excellent quality fruit and low yields, ideal for rich, complex wines.

Sourced from 3 exceptional vineyards in the cool southern region of Napa Valley, this Chardonnay was aged on the lees in stainless steel tanks and small French Oak barrels. The wine underwent partial malolactic fermentation to add weight and richness without overpowering the fruit.

The wine exhibits aromas of ripe peach, pear and citrus, with a hint of tropical fruit on the palate. The finish is long with bright acidity.
o Whole cluster pressed w ...more... ith limited skin contact.
o 73% fermented in stainless steel, 27% in French oak barriques (6 months aged in 1-2 year old barrels)
o 23% Malolactic fermentation.
