Wine maker notes
Vintage 2012
All of the fruit had at least onehour of skin contact in the press to control acidity, gain that smooth texture and highlight bright aromatics and flavors. We then follow with cold stainless steel fermentation (between 60f and 63f) to retain brightness, minerality and the exotic fruit character of the Rued Clone in the blend.

Tasting Notes
By nose: a complex blend of stone fruit, green pear and pineapple.
By mouth: balanced acidity, grapefruit, Gravenstein apple and minerality.

Production Notes: 2700 cases produced

100% Chardonnay: 77% Clone 4, 23% Rued Clone

Food Pairing Notes
Pairs beautifully with salmon tartar, bacon wrapped scallops, prosciutto sandwich, and whole wheat pasta with caper pesto. This is a great vegetable wine - spicy wood fired green chilies, crisp fennel salad and most especially heirloom tomatoes.
