Wine Profile
Harvest Notes
2015 delivered another superb harvest season. Despite many challenges such as wildfires, a fourth year of drought and one of the earliest seasons on record, the quality was very high across the board. The season began with a mild winter that resulted in early bud break followed by bloom and then a cooler than normal springtime contributed to a smaller grape clusters than normal. The smaller berries within each cluster helped intensify the flavor and aroma compounds and made white wines that are fruit-forward and aromatic, and reds that have great depth and intensity with pleasant tannins.
Vineyard Notes
Chardonnay is a white grape varietal that originated in the Burgundy region of France and is planted in more wine regions than any other grape. Our Chardonnay comes from Tres Patas Vineyard located at the south end of Ukiah Valley, Inland Mendocino County. Owned and managed by Dave Koball, Tres Patas is named after their three-legged dogs and reflects the three principles of his operation: equity, economic and environmental responsibility.
