  • Winemaker: Matt Iaconis

  • Variety: 100% Chardonnay

  • Terroir: Just an hour north from Sonoma County is the Anderson Valley AVA, surrounded by redwood forests, bordered by the Mendocino coastline. Our 2021 Anderson Valley Chardonnay is sourced from the southern end of Anderson Valley. A mix of certified sustainable and organic vineyards, Anderson Valley
    is much colder than other areas in California because the
    valley runs north-west, opening up to the Pacific Ocean. There is prominent marine influence in the region, bringing cool evenings and foggy mornings which create dynamic growing conditions for delicate grapes like Chardonnay.

  • Vinification: The Chardonnay is whole-cluster pressed and allowed to settle via gravity before being transferred to 100% neutral french oak barrels. Native primary fermentation occurs lasting upwards of six months. No malolactic fermentation nor bâtonnage is performed to the barrels in order to preserve a pure expression of the vineyard, as the intense sunlight of the site creates incredible texture in the fruit.

  • Tasting Notes: The palate is framed by racy acidity, with a richness of fruit and hints of oak toasted hazelnut and hard spice. Ripe melon, quince and yellow apple
    flavors are coupled with mandarin zest, juniper and thyme. The wine is textured and elegant exuding the warm sunny growing days and cool temperatures of Anderson Valley.
