Vineyard Notes
Since the early 1990s our Chardonnay vineyard in the Oak Knoll district of Napa Valley is planted with four different clones of Chardonnay (our Heirloom Clones and Dijon Clones #76, #95, #96) plant to 420A rootstock, 101-14 and 5c from which we produce Chardonnay grapes with rich bright fruit flavors. Soils are Pleasanton and Yolo Series Loam. Our Monticello Vineyards designated Chardonnays are a great example of how the different clones, rootstock, and soil combinations specific to our vineyard create a most harmonious wine. Although we work with the same estate vineyard blocks each vintage, it is always interesting to see how they conduct themselves in any given season. They adapt to the season, and so do we. The differences in each growing season are what makes winemaking so fascinating, and these seasonal differences are one reason why the blends shift from year to year even though the grapes come from the same field. The result is a fully ripe, lower alcohol, extremely well balanced wine that should show well for several years. The wine was fermented in new French Oak and stainless steel and aged for 8 months in new and neutral French Oak Barrels (about 1/3 new). 12+ Months in French Oak.
