Most of the fruit for this Chardonnay was from our own vineyard at Line 6 as well as Cherry Ave. For this harvest we lucked out with the fruit being very clean. Our Cherry Ave Fruit ripened earlier then our other sources, so we harvested a month sooner than everything else at the end of September, while the rest of the Chardonnay was harvested towards the end of October. As the fruit came in, we let it sit whole cluster for 7 days with CO2 in stainless steel tanks. As soon as the last bunch was pressed into tank, we blended them together and transferred them to three 1000L Slovenian oak vats to finish fermenting and then aging for 10 months. It went through full malolactic conversion.
