TASTING NOTES

By nose: Orange zest, Tahitian lime and minerality. By mouth: Lime, tangerine and creamy richness on the finish. In the spirit of supporting ocean conservancy, best pairings focus on seafood deemed a “best choice” on the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program.


VINEYARD NOTES

2016 was our second short crop in a row. Total production was just under 17,000 cases , when we pray for 30,000. A cool summer gave our vineyard crew a good, long season, allowing us to be even more discerning in picking grapes at their optimum maturity.


WINEMAKER NOTES

This cuvee is the blend of five Chardonnay clones grown on the estate. The composition of the dosage for this wine is 6ml Blanc de Blancs LEX and 6 mls Rued Clone Chardonnay.
