100% Chardonnay; 100% barrel-fermented and aged; made from juice only; 2 years in 30 gallon barrels without topping or SO2.

We have made so much progress with our farming of this precious, back-yard, vineyard. In 2013, we harvested 2 tons of fruit, the most since 2002 and nearly twice 2012. And the quality— in part because of our farming, and in part because of the drought— has never been higher. Complexity, intensity, excellent acidity. The wine is ripe and powerful, but also subtle and complex; completely marked by its exposure to oxygen and the influence of surface yeast. In some ways like Ganevat; in some ways like a Manzanilla Pasada. This wine is ready to drink but will develop slowly and subtlely for 20 years.

We have raised the price on this wine substantially. This is now the correct price-- cost of production has not increased. But it is now at the same price as its peers.
