Brilliant golden hue. Enticing aromas of lemon oil, sweet water and apricot with notes of lint and crushed stone. Layered with broad textures, bright citrus, creme brulee and the signature Camp Meeting Ridge sea-salt minerality. Precisely balanced with a vibrant acidity that carries the palate through to a lingering finish — a vivid expression of our Estate Vineyard.
Sourced entirely from our organic and biodynamically farmed Camp Meeting Ridge Estate Vineyard. Planted in 1991, these “older” vines are producing our most exciting and interesting Chardonnays to date. Given the extremes of this site, each small block ripens at its own pace. Picked by hand in the foggy frigidness of the night, fruit integrity and temperature were ensured for a whole cluster pressing by sunrise. Blocks 1, 3, 4, and 21-28, planted with Hyde-Old Wente and Dijon 95 clones, were selected for the 2014 blend.
