Production Notes

The fruit was hand harvested and delivered to the winery in the cool, early hours. The grapes were sent direct to press with a gentle cycle to extract the best cuts of the juice. After two days of settling, the wine was transferred to barrels for primary and malolactic fermentations. The wine was sur lie aged with lees stirring every two weeks to enhance the aromatics, texture and flavors. After 16 months of aging in American and French oak (33% new), the wine was bottled on June 29, 2021.

Vineyard Notes

Patrick’s Vineyard is named after owner Bill Foley’s son. It is an exposed, rolling site in lower Carneros, close to San Pablo Bay. The cool, foggy, windy climate and marine soils at Patrick’s are ideal for full-bodied, well-structured Chardonnay. The vineyard is planted to three excellent, low-production clones: #6, #17 (better known as the Robert Young Selection), and #95. The grapes are grown on a divided canopy to increase sun exposure resulting in more “yellow fruit” as opposed to green flavors. This is consistently Sebastiani’s best vineyard for Chardonnay.
