This is a single vineyard Chardonnay from our family ranch on Chalk Hill Road. It’s the coldest vineyard in Alexander Valley and the 2017 shows that: green apple, honeydew and wet slate. There’s a lot of mineral character here. The 2017 was aged on the lees in old French oak barrels for six months, a process that has a tempering, broadening effect on the otherwise very racy texture.
