100% Chardonnay, sourced from Lodi and Clarksburg, California. Those two AVAs sit on the south side of the Sacramento Delta. As is witnessed by the huge wind turbines lining Highway 4 from Napa, there are strong, cooling, Pacific breezes that sweep out the high afternoon heat. This allows for ripe fruit flavors with even, slowly building sugars. Cropping, or dropping fruit to enhance remaining clusters is done with historical references to guide yields. The elegant apple and lemon fruit profile is well balanced with hints of green pears. The white floral aromas are soft and add a nice delicate touch.
