Our 2017 Chardonnay comes from the Stuhlmuller Ranch in the Southwest corner of Alexander Valley. This old Chardonnay vineyard is tucked into the hills where the valley ends and the Russian River turns west towards Healdsburg. A mix of Old Barn and number 4 clone, the vines benefit from the hot afternoons and cool nights along the river.
Total production of this Chardonnay was two hundred cases. All barrel fermented with fifty percent ML. 25% new oak
