2016 Chardonnay

2016 Chardonnay

A lively and energetic wine with great poise offering abundant aromatics of citrus blossom, lemon curd, and golden delicious apple with hints of flint and cinnamon stick. This wine is quintessential to our long, cool growing season in the Edna Valley. On the palate, a beautiful balance between tension and richness bringing tropical layers of mango and pineapple alongside notes of graham and ground nutmeg.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
This Chardonnay comes from Biddle Ranch Vineyard in the heart of the Edna Valley. Located roughly 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean, we see a cool coastal influence keeping the fruit bright with acidity. Our sunny warm summer days and long growing season allows the sunshine to kiss the fruit just enough to build up complex sugars. This vineyard contains a sandy Loam soil as well as Chert (clay) bringing texture to the wine. The specific block chosen for this wine has a slight slope providing good drainage, allowing for the quality of fruit to develop over the quantity.
