|Appellation/Sub-Region||Santa Lucia Highlands|
|Vineyard/Cellar Practices||Organically Grown|
The Escolle vineyard is situated on a northern elevated shelf of the Santa Lucia Highlands, where ancient glacial alluvial soils, morning fog, and afternoon winds produce an ideal setting for classic Burgundian grapes. 100% chardonnay, the vineyards have been organically dry farmed since 2016. The fruit is whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented, with 35% in new French oak. It undergoes partial malolactic fermentation and is aged on the lees for 10 months, which contribute to the wine's luxurious texture. The result is a big, classic California chardonnay that offers all the full-bodied richness with not a bit of flab on it! A generous nose of green pineapple, white peach, and Golden Delicious apple mingle on a chewy, silky frame that finishes with a touch of savory salinity. Rich, yet restrained and elegant, this is sure to be a new favorite with lovers of California chardonnay. Organically grown.
