2013 Estate Vineyard Chardonnay

2013 Estate Vineyard Chardonnay


This is the second release of Chardonnay from our esteemed Estate property and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the 2013 vintage. Our inaugural release was such a huge success that we grafted more Chardonnay vines on this property to try to keep up with demand. Steady weather conditions in Fort Ross – Seaview in 2013 allowed us to capture the potential of this site by crafting a Chardonnay that displays bright and racy acidity, lovely floral aromatics and elegant citrus fruit. The Chardonnay was harvested from vines planted in fractured marine sandstone that weathered over millions of years from an uplifted seabed known as the Ohlson Ranch Formation. This soil offers the same viticultural advantages as the oft-referenced Goldridge series found in the lower West Sonoma Coast elevations around Sebastopol, yet differs by including less clay and more stone than sand in its composition. It is 100% from an old Wente “clone” that was selected over the course of decades by Larry Hyde specifically for the small size of its clusters and mineral flavor profile. These differences are revealed in this distinctly unique and terroir driven Chardonnay.

Tastes: Meyer lemon, hazelnut, honeysuckle
