Production Notes

The Reserve Chardonnay was hand harvested in the cool morning hours from August 31 - October 16, 2017 to preserve flavor and aromatics. The 2017 features some of our favorite clones: Remond, Boutes, Grand Reserve, Damy. The juice was barrel fermented and aged for 18 months in 100% new French oak barrels. To add richness and complexity to the wine, we stirred the lees every two weeks. It was then bottled in May of 2019.

Vineyard Notes

The 2017 vintage is one I will never forget. It was a year of growth and challenges hurled at us by mother nature. The growing season started off bold with early bud break followed by a few sporadic frost events. Overall, the growing season temperature was moderate to cool rendering uniform berry set. As harvest approached, Mother Nature delivered extremely warm temperatures which cued the start of harvest on August 31. Harvest wrapped up October 16 resulting in moderate yields and full flavor development.
