Winemaker Notes
Our Reserve Chardonnay is made to be the best expression of any given vintage. For 2017, it exudes aromas of red apples, melon and lemon zest. The palate brings forth flavors of pear, citrus, honeydew and toasted brioche all wrapped up by a balanced acidity. A lingering minerality leaves you going in for another sip.

Production Notes
2017 was marked by its heavy rainfall, heat spikes in summer, and high quality fruit. Winter rains replenished the soils leading up to budbreak. Temperatures throughout spring and early summer were moderate, resulting in slow even ripening. A heat spike at the end of August – early September propelled us into harvest. We began picking the fruit on August 31st through November 3rd, 2017 at optimal maturity.
Vineyard Notes
Over the past two decades the Santa Ynez Valley has emerged as one of the most celebrated winegrowing regions in California. Formed by the Purisima Hills and San Rafael Mountains to the north and the Santa Ynez Mountains to the south, it is the largest AVA in Santa Barbara County. The cool, western portion of the Santa Ynez Valley is well suited to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir while the warmer eastern section is home to aromatic whites such as Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache, and Sauvignon Blanc as well as bold reds including Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
