Tasting Notes

Refined aromas of green apple, pear and lemon peel with a flinty note reminiscent of Chablis. Its elegant palate echoes the bouquet with clean, bright flavors of stone fruit and citrus, backed by firm acidity where oak is an afterthought. A touch of creaminess on the mid-palate is followed by lovely mineral notes that carry through an extraordinarily long finish. It would be hard to pick out this bottle as Californian in a lineup of White Burgundies. Enjoy now or cellar through 2022.

  • Harvest Dates: August 24—September 7, 2015
  • Vineyards: Roughly a dozen vineyard blocks from five long-term growers.
  • Fermentation: Clusters destemmed and gently pressed at night to extract freshness and acidity while avoiding astringent phenolic character from the skins. Inoculated and fermented 17 days in 47% stainless steel and 53% new French oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation limited to only 19%.
  • Sur Lie: Two months of sur-lie aging with a weekly bâtonnage (in both stainless steel and barrel) to heighten the creamy texture of the mid-palate.
  • Cooperages: French oak barrels from eight coopers were chosen based on grain tightness, low tannin potential and light toast levels, allowing for the purity of the fruit to shine.
  • Aging: 6 months in 100% new French oak.
  • Selection: Double-sorting of grapes (in vineyard and at winery); press cuts done by taste to preserve the free-run juice’s pure flavors.
