2017 Highlands Chardonnay
The "Highlands" Chardonnay is crafted from fruit grown on both our Pali Estate Vineyard and the Chapel Vineyard (formerly Huber Vineyard) located in the esteemed Sta. Rita Hills AVA. Several Chardonnay clones are included in this wine: the Wente clone from Chapel Vineyard as well as Clone 17 (aka Robert Young) and Clone 37 (aka Dijon Clone 95) from the Pali Vineyard. This wine was barrel-fermented and barrel-aged for 15 months, using 30% new French oak, prior to bottling in December 2018.
