Their 2015 Unfiltered Chardonnay was 100 percent barrel-fermented using indigenous yeasts. The wine was aged for a total of 12 months in French oak barrels, 27 percent of which were new. During maturation every barrel was hand-stirred weekly to re-suspend the sediment, a technique that protects the wine from oxidation and creates added complexity. The individual lots were then blended and bottled unfiltered.

Viticulture:
The 2015 season was one of contrasts. The vintage was noted by significantly reduced yields (-35-50%) a result of a cool and damp flowering period in spring which resulted in poor fruit set and fewer berries per bunch. The summer and autumn seasons were hot and dry continuing the run of drought conditions which commenced from the 2012 vintage. The quality of the fruit was outstanding although in limited supply with the vintage likely to be recognized as one of Napa Valley’s greatest.

Tasting notes:
'Intense, pristine and concentrated. Aromas of citrus blossom, white peach, brioche, gun smoke and marzipan create wonderful depth. Flavors continue on the palate including lime zest, jasmine and honeydew melon. Wonderfully intense, the fruit blends seamlessly with subtle smoky oak and yeasty complexity to create a textural and vibrant mouthfeel. The juicy acidity balances the profound intensity of the fruit providing great carry and length.' – Winemaker
