2014 Club Exclusive Chardonnay
This wine was crafted exclusively for our wine club members to showcase the versatility of the Chardonnay varietal. Fermented and aged almost entirely in concrete, this wine is bright with nice minerality. A small percentage is fermented in French oak, which lends to further developed complexity.
A temperate spring and perfect weather around fruit set coupled with a terrific summer of warm temperatures and dry days led to a beautiful vintage of perfectly sized, lusciously ripe fruit. We had our earliest harvest on record, starting with our younger Pinot Noir sections on September 8. The wines from this vintage are concentrated and fruit driven, illustrating both restraint in winemaking—letting our vineyard display its nature as well as power of a robust growing season.
