description

This Burgundian-style Chardonnay was grown at Stubbs Vineyard, near to us, in the Petaluma Gap. The soil there is well-drained preventing excessive vine vigor to help with flavor development. The long, cool growing season supports the intense flavors while maintaining natural fruit acidity.

The site’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean gives the redwood boards on the fences and buildings there a weathered, natural texture. The front label’s illustration portrays that along with the cypress trees planted on the property.

The wine has aromatics of wisteria, passionfruit, green fig, and Juicy Fruit gum. On the palate, the flavors include white peach, guava, Asian pear, Meyer lemon, and tangerine. While not bone dry, the wine has incredible acidity and minerality with notes of spice that we can’t resist. There’s a touch of toastiness from fermenting in French oak puncheons. The overall finish is fresh and vibrant.
