Description

Sourced from two of the original blocks of the Stratus Vineyard, one of which dates back to 1985 and comprised of silty loam, clay and limestone. A cool spring and summer followed with a very warm and lengthy late summer and fall allowed a harvest between October 8 and 10. Barrel fermented with indigenous yeast followed by monthly lees stirring in a combination of neutral and newer oak barrels contribute to texture and creaminess. Fleshy tones of ripe peach, citrus make this a dynamic, elegant medium-bodied Chardonnay with a nod to its single-vineyard terroir.
