This multifaceted, single vineyard Chardonnay from a high elevation vineyard west of Sonoma Carneros shines with a core of yellow pit fruit accompanied by touches of lemon, roasted nuts and minerals that runs from the first whiff to the long, focused finish. Especially solid, texturally rich mid-palate. The oak is well integrated with just hints showing on the nose and finish. After four years of working with this diverse, windswept site, the Calesa Vineyard continues to reign again in 2022 by pushing varietal limits. While drinking early, I am confident that this wine will see well beyond 2034. Bottled Unfiltered and Unfined.
