2016 Langtry Genevieve Vineyard Chardonnay, Guenoc Valley AVA
Our 2016 Genevieve Vineyard Chardonnay is an elegant and dynamic expression of our estate vineyard. The palate possesses a great balance of oak, butter and fruit, with melon and honeydew at the forefront. The viscous mid palate is complemented with a bright acidity and creamy notes which linger on the finish.
99% Chardonnay, 1% Marsanne
10 months in neutral oak
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.
