Winemaker's Notes

"...the 2003 Chardonnay Thieriot Vineyard looks to be the best Chardonnay to yet emerge from Neyers. A sensational aromatic explosion of orange marmalade, citrus oil, roasted nuts, white peaches, and orange blossoms are all present in this multi-dimensional, complex, rich, full-throttle Chardonnay made in a vineyard that looks down on California's Bodega Bay – a decidedly cool climate site. This wine should drink well for 4-5 years."
-Wine Advocate 93-95 Rating

These grapes were harvested almost a full month after our other Chardonnay vineyards. Cam Thieriot's aerie-like vineyard, 1200 feet above the Pacific Ocean on the Sonoma coast, allows Chardonnay to ripen slowly and evenly. Cam gets every drop of flavor into his fruit that this unique site allows. Winemaker Ehren Jordan guides these grapes into one of California's most exciting wines. The 2003 Thieriot Chardonnay fermented for ten months. In early December the wine was racked for clarification, and two weeks later it was bottled unfiltered. Richness in Chardonnay is desirable. Here it's accompanied by an uncommon amount of complexity. 343 cases produce
