If Orange Creamsicle was a wine this would be it. Grown right atop of the San Andreas fault line this wines minerality is perfectly balanced by the completed MLF and richness from extended skin contact. Drink now at 55 F or lay down for up to 10 years and see how Cienega AVA is the best kept secret for growing Chardonnay.
These wente Clone Chardonnay grapes were organically dry-farmed and harvested from Gimelli Vineyard in the Cienega AVA and Zabala Vineyards in the Arroyo Seco AVA. Harvested at 21.5 Brix and 2.2 g/L Malic acid these grapes were destemmed and natively fermented on skins for 10-14 days before being pressed into flex tank eggs where they finished primary and malolactic fermentation natively. Subsequently, they were racked into neutral oak barrels for four months before being bottled at 15 ppm free SO2
