Winemaker's Notes

Winemaker Bob Fredson sources STG Chardonnay from a small viticultural Area that is virtually synonymous with """"Chardonnay."""" Chalk Hill is a subappellation of some 1000 acres within the Russian River Valley. Chardonnay, the predominant grape here, is rooted in well-drained white souls which derive their color from volcanic ash, not chalk as once thought. The summer fog and cool nights are especially conductive to full development of Chardonnay character.

All the grapes for STG Chalk Hill Chardonnay were harvested by hand from a single vineyard. The wine was fermented in 60-gallon barrels and remained in the barrels from several weeks to add complexity; 80% of the wine then underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in barrel sur lie for six months before being filtered and placed in new oak barrels for additional maturing. The wine has distinctly fruity aromas, creamy texture and full body, with attractive oak complexity.
