Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The grapes for this 2018 Chardonnay come from Sonoma County, where warm days and cool nights allow for rich flavor development and maturation. The grapes were hand harvested in the earlier morning hours on September 13 and 17 to retain freshness and were aged for 8 months in 20% new French oak before being bottled.
