Our 2019 Felta Chardonnay has beautiful aromas of peach, vanilla and pear framed by toasty oak spice. On the palate, a dense, rich, round mouthfeel is perfectly balanced with bright acidity, integrating cream, nectarine and mineral flavors that lead to a juicy finish.

Production Notes

Each Chardonnay barrel is unique, from variations in the barrels themselves to the particular native yeast population that ferments the juice in that barrel. When blending our club Chardonnays, we choose the specific barrels that best show the characteristics of that vineyard.

Vineyard Notes

Each Chardonnay block here is planted with the ideal clone and rootstock, the result of years of learning what works best where. This Chardonnay takes its name from the alluvial soil on our estate called Felta. Its gravelly texture and naturally balanced nutrients allow for optimum growing conditions for Chardonnay.
