Winemaker's Notes

The 1999 Chardonnay vintage was one of the smallest on record at our Mitsuko's Vineyard, begging the adage, "great things come in small packages." A heady bouquet of apple blossom, white peach and toasted almond precede a palate of white peach, nectarine and hints of grapefruit. A wine of wonderful weight and density, with a rich, almost oily, concentration, it finishes with a fine impression of sweetness and length. Vinted in traditional manner, with native yeast in French cooperage, aged 11 months sur-lies and bottled without filtration, our '99 offering maintains the fine lineage of Chardonnays we've fashioned from our Estate vineyard.
