This ten acre, valley floor Chardonnay block sits a quarter mile east of the Langtry house on fairly shallow, gravelly clay loam soils with high magnesium and low nutrient content that limits vine vigor and crop levels. Very cool nights allow for excellent acidity and rich, fully mature fruit with abundant flavor and character. This Chardonnay is composed of small cluster Dijon clones 76 and 96.
