2009 Los Olivos Chardonnay

Pineapple, butterscotch, brown sugar, and banana.

Grapes sourced from our Los Olivos Vineyard in Jamieson Canyon, a region consistently cooled by nearly San Pablo Bay; predictable fog for a slow, even ripening process that maintains a crisp acidity to showcase the fruit flavors of our Dijon clones and Rued field selection.

Tasting Notes

Bold, deep, and full of fruit—pineapple, nectarine, fig, and citrus—with shadows of vanilla and honeysuckle; dense and rich, with a lingering finish balanced by bright acidity.

Winemaker's Notes

Harvested at night to ensure that the grapes are still cool when they reach the winery; whole-cluster pressed, cold settled, and barrel fermented with native yeasts; aged in French oak for a minimum of 18 months.
