Mendocino County 


The historic property on our Mendocino estate sits just west of the Russian River in the Sanel Valley.  


Soils: Clay loam & gravel
Elevation: 300 feet


The cool breezes coming down from lake Mendocino mix with the gusts coming up from the Alexander Valley create the perfect ripening environment for clone 4 chardonnay. This rot-resistant clone thrives in the clay loam soil with underlying gravel, which increases drainage and forces the vines to dig deep into the valley floor.


Harvest: September 2020
Production: 400 cases
Grapes were gently hand-harvested before sunrise. After crush, they were cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks.Twenty-five percent was aged in French oak barrels were it underwent malolactic fermentation. The barrels received regular bâtonage, or barrel stirring, which contributes to a full body with a creamy complexity on the palate.


Bright aromas of ambrosia apple golden apricot, and fresh-cut mango lead into flavors of Shingo pear, pink grapefruit, and grilled peach. Crisp acidity lingers along with tannins and notes of Valencia orange, jasmine, and key lime. Balanced fruit makes this the perfect pairing for grilled Gulf prawn tacos with chipotle slaw, salsa verde, and cotija cheese.
