Tasting NOTES

Bursting with aromas and flavors of fresh meyer lemon, key lime, clementine, Asian pear and tropical fruit, with a touch of toffee and cream. Round and smooth mouthfeel with considerable weight and depth, balanced by crisp acidity and complex minerality that lead into to a long, vibrant finish.

Vineyard NOTES

The Bundschu family’s 150+year-old vineyard is located on the SW slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains, just eight miles north of San Pablo Bay. Terrain below 150 ft elevation features gently sloping Huichica clay loam soils with gravel deposits and cooler growing conditions that deliver minerality and focused acidity. Wines grown in these blocks bear the Sonoma Coast designation to reflect their cool climate character.

Four distinct blocks of Chardonnay harvested separately include two blocks 40+year-old Heritage Selections; two blocks Robert Young clone. Yield 2.8 tons/acre.
