We grow our Chardonnay fruit on our Mistral Vineyard in Monterey County, where its proximity to the bay and Pacific breezes create the perfect environment for this cool climate variety. The grapes were picked early in the morning and immediately delivered to the winery. The fruit was pressed and the juice was then chilled down to 45°F for 48 hours to allow the sediment to settle. Afterwards, the juice was racked to both stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels for fermentation. The wine was then aged on its lees for six months to increase complexity and enrich the mouthfeel.
