2017 Pali Estate Vineyard Chardonnay
Pali Vineyard spans 50 acres and is located in Gypsy Canyon along the Hwy 246 corridor in the Sta. Rita Hills. Planted entirely to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varietals in 2012, our vineyard sits on a gentle, southeast-facing slope comprised mostly of sandy soils. Made from Clone 95, this elegant, mineral and acid-driven wine was barrel-fermented and barrel-aged sur-lie with regular batonage of the less, which contributes to a more luxurious mouthfeel. The wine was aged in a combination of new (50%) and neutral French oak (50%) for 16 months and bottled in May 2019.
