Clean Clusters

August 1, 2020

Our Chardonnay plan for 2020 is a move toward an even more delicate and citrusy wine.  To accomplish this, we start with the cleanest possible clusters, with no damage, mold or sunburn.  We've left a little more side leaves and more canopy above for a nice shade for about 4-5 hours of mid-day heat.  We'll be picking just a little less ripe for more natural acids.  In the winery we'll whole cluster press with our new computer-controlled press for just the right extraction, ferment on native yeast for a full expression of our site and keep the fermentation a little on the cool side to keep the flavors light and aroma expressive.  I'm so excited!
