We set aside the best Chardonnay grapes from our North Ridge Vineyard to make this limited bottling. Planted in 1982 by Dr. Gristina, our vines have had over three decades to perfect the expression of this varietal's characteristics. Aged for 14 months in semi-neutral French barrels to delicately compliment the natural tones of orange confit and apple with notes of toast, vanilla, and almond. Rich mouthfeel, bright acidity, toast, fruit. It's all about balance.
