We sourced this Chardonnay from our oldest, highest-quality vineyards, with half of the grapes coming from our estate vineyards planted in 1971, 1972 and 1973. These MacWood heritage selections yield tiny berries that contribute intensity and structure to the wine. The age of our vines gives our Chardonnay wines their intense flavors, quality and aging potential. Our 2019 Chardonnay was aged 8 months in French oak (10% new), developing an alluring aromatic profile. Apricot, green apple and pear are accented by a wet rock minerality and are complemented by a fresh acidity on the finish.
