    Winemaker Notes
    Chardonnay exclusively from our 23-year-old vineyard block on the Allendale property was harvested in late September at 23.4 Brix. The grapes were whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented in French oak with daily lees stirring. 23% of the barrels were new French oak and the remaining were neutral (3-8 years old). Partial Malolactic fermentation followed with 60% of the barrels going to completion. The wine was aged on lees for 11 months before final blending and bottling.
    Food Pairing Notes
    Classic pairing with richer seafood dishes like fresh lobster or cedar plank salmon
