This bottling is comprised of 100% estate Mount Eden clone chardonnay from our Hapgood vineyard, which exhibits a broader stone fruit flesh and weight in the wine.

VINEYARD

Located across the road from our Machado vineyard and is situated immediately next to the Acin parcel at the end of Hapgood Road. In slightly richer soil, the vineyard is planted to the Mount Eden selection of chardonnay. The elevated clay loam content results in larger volume and a more dense palate expression.

CRAFT

Only neutral Sirugue barrels are used for 12-18 mos. Whole Cluster pressed chardonnay. We do not promote or prohibit malolatic fermentation, allowing wine to be in balance, bright and elegant.

CELLARING

All of the single vineyard wines are produced with the intention of aging and cellaring for at least 10 years and can easily be enjoyed after 15 years.
