Hand harvested from SE facing vines on a gentle slope of the Calesa Vineyard in the Petaluma Gap AVA of the Sonoma Coast, whole clusters of the Clone 17 Chardonnay are carefully sorted and delicately pressed. Lush mouth feel and complex structure are augmented through barrel fermentation over several months in a cool cellar, sur lie with frequent stirring. An extended and complete malo-lactic fermentation follows through the following summer, for added depth.
