For this Chardonnay, we rely almost entirely on vineyards from the Carneros District where the climate is distinctly cooler and foggier than ‘up valley’. Carneros is a world unto itself. Much of its soil is dense clay due to the region’s proximity to San Pablo Bay. This soil, combined with the marine influence of cool winds, brings about Chardonnay fruit with impressive structure and a flinty minerality.
