2020 Golden Slope Chardonnay
Sta. Rita Hills
When putting together the final blend for our Golden Slope we are looking for barrels exhibiting a bit more richness and depth than the White Hill. Once those barrels are identified we introduce about 15% new French Oak and age the wine for 15 months prior to bottling. The resulting wine is something that reminds us of some of our favorites from Meursault.
We have endearingly nicknamed this wine "Goldilocks" because of her impeccable balance of richness and fresh acidity. She is "just right!!"
