Delicate notes of honeysuckle, lime blossom, and beeswax seamlessly merge into a lingering finish with a surprising hint of ginger. The 2020 vintage displays great promise, benefiting from mild temperatures and chilly nights that helped maintain its refreshing acidity. Protected from spring frost by their elevated locations, the vineyards navigated through potential threats from spring rains, ultimately contributing to the exceptional concentration and pristine fruit character of this Chardonnay. This vintage embodies age-worthy qualities, boasting a perfect balance of high acidity and luscious ripe fruit nuances.

The manually harvested grapes were barrel-fermented with indigenous vineyard yeasts to fully express the site. The wine underwent careful bâtonnage, the amount and frequency of which were carefully tailored to the barrel. The wine was matured for 14 months in 100% French oak, of which 10% was new, and 90% was second or third passage.

A beautifully textured Chardonnay with bright, crunchy fruit notes complemented by hints of honeysuckle, lime blossom and beeswax through to a gingery kick on the finish.

Winery

The grapes come from three vineyards within the Russian River Valley AVA, but predominantly from Bush Vineyard, near Dutton Ranch, where the clones are mainly Old Wente and Hyde. Renowned as one of California's coolest and foggiest AVAs, the microclimate creates the perfect conditions for producing highly-acclaimed Chardonnay, with warm days and cool nights. The warm climate is tempered by the cool coastal breezes and the trademark fog that lingers over the vineyards, bringing moisture and cooling the vines. The result is a long hang-time, during which the vines slowly build aromatic complexity and concentrated flavours, superbly balanced by natural, crisp freshness. The soils of the Russian River Valley are made up of Goldridge soils, a rare, fine-grained sandy loam, which is light and fluffy and known for its excellent drainage properties. The vineyards are certified as Sonoma County Sustainably Farmed Grape
