Produced in just 5 new French oak barrels, this Reserve Chard is more classic Burgundian in style. Lemon stone minerality is enhanced with fresh-baked toffee brittle and a creamy finish from 6 months of contact on the lees. One sip, and it’s Chard-oh-em-gee!

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The grapes for the Reserve Chardonnay come from vines on our property planted in 2001. The two Chardonnay clones used in the Reserve - 96 and 76 - produce smaller grape clusters that enhance flavor development.
Production Notes
The Chardonnay grapes were pressed, then transferred to new oak barrels for fermentation. Malolactic fermentation occurred after the primary fermentation had finished. The lees were stirred over the course of six months of barrel aging to enhance the wine's mouthfeel.
