This wine is a blend of a number of Chardonnay vineyard blocks from Bien Nacido and Dierberg in Santa Maria Valley along with pieces of holdings down in the Santa Rita Hills. The wine sees less than 10% new wood and is left to rest on its lees for about a year before it is moved to tank for the last few months prior to bottling to ensure the wine's tension, elegance and precision.
Orchard fruit, baked apple, white flowers and mint notes. Amazing acidity and buckets of ripe fruit. Delicious.
