Vineyard Notes:

The integration of several different clones of Chardonnay brings unique characteristics to this multifaceted wine which is naturally fermented, unfined and unfiltered. At Los Olivos, one of the coldest sites in Napa Valley due to the marine winds from the San Pablo Bay as well as the Petaluma Gap, the temperature protects the exceptional freshness and allows the Wente and Hyde clones to fully express themselves while Caldwell Vineyard brings roundness and depth.
