Wine maker notes
All of the fruit was whole cluster pressed, this technique produces a full-bodied wine with delicate structure. Our Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented in French oak (33% new) using various yeast strains. After fermentation the wine remains in barrel on the lees (sur lie) for 10 months. A partial malolactic fermentation (30% complete) allows the wine to retain its natural acidity, while regular stirring of the lees (battonage) gives added complexity and richness.

Chardonnay is located throughout the southern part of the Truchard Estate Vineyard. The vines range from 5 to 27 years old and benefit from the various marine soils, gently sloped terrain, and cooler temperatures-conditions that make the Carneros region ideal for growing Chardonnay. They produce aromatic wines with tropical fruit characteristics, and a unique spicy element.
