This is a highly allocated Chardonnay from the Vendemia vineyard, most recently christened with the name “Chuy” to honor the man who lovingly cared for this vineyard its entire life. This is the last harvest of these 45 year-old vines planted at 1,000 feet elevation.
Lemon curd, petrol oil and white nectarines with a taut, honeyed finish. This wine has nice structure and a long, balanced finish. Only 4 barrels produced!
