Winemaker Jennifer Marion Notes
We seek out premium grapes from the Sonoma Coast that will produce wines reminiscent of the most respected wines of Burgundy. Our Chardonnay comes from premium Sonoma Coast growers, each representing the many micro-climates of this vast appellation. The famed Sonoma Coast soils translate their mineral richness to the wines, imparting depth of flavor and character. Anabatic winds blow rather persistently throughout the summer and sunshine is abundant. This fruit was hand harvested early in the morning to ensure the coldest juice possible and came into the winery in exceptional condition and was whole cluster pressed. 60% of the fruit was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 50 degrees without malolactic fermentation. 40% of our wine was ...more... barrel fermented, its lees stirred for 10 weeks post fermentation. Barrel fermented wine went through malolactic fermentation. This partial malolactic fermentation helps the wine retain its acidity and freshness. The wine spent 11 months in 100% French oak barrels, 22% of which were new. Our preferred barrel coopers include Francois Freres, Sirugue, and Taransaud.
