An elegant blend of premium vineyard fruit from Sonoma County, these cool climate sites represent the best of the vintage. Greg Stach’s expertise in selecting the finest sites with our growers’ excellent viticultural practices yield truly exceptional fruit from vineyards such as Lorenzo and Lone Oak in the Russian River Valley and Bald Mountain in the Sonoma Valley. The chardonnay is hand harvested, hand sorted and fermented using all native yeasts allowing us to showcase the purest snapshot of the vintage.
Each lot was lightly whole cluster pressed, allowed to settle for a day and then placed into French oak barrels (33% new) where it spontaneously fermented using all native yeasts. The wine is aged sur-lie for 10 months. The barrels are stirred twice a month to round out the wine and build texture.
