Our 2011 Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay displays excellent balance, weight and integration due to extended barrel aging and lees stirring. As always, native yeasts complete fermentation, which adds complexity on the palate and nose. Barrel aging was completed in predominately neutral french oak.

More about this wine

Winemaker Notes
Dijon clones 95 and 96 from Solomon Hills provide a supple base with bright acidity and tropical and citrus notes. Our winemaking is minimalist: cold fermentation with native yeast, aging in neutral French oak and lees stirring twice a week for six months.
