Vineyard Notes
The 2019 growing season started with high volumes of rain over winter and spring, with vine prunings finishing up in February because of the wet weather. This led to a staggered bud break from early March with the Hillside Reserve Chardonnay and finishing with Creekside Pinot Noir in early April. 2019 marked a cool and foggy growing season with good lignification from the long growing season, leading to rich full expressions of each varietal.
Winemaker Notes
Native fermentation in barrel. Aged sur lie (on the yeast) in barrel (30% new French oak) for 10 months. 100% malolactic fermentation (native). Bottled unfiltered.
Other Notes
Wine Enthusiast Review - Clean lines of lemon confit, light peach and lime tonic come through on the nose of this bottling. There is a white-rock minerality that gives a firm edge to the sip, where subtle flavors of mango and guava sit atop the chalky frame. - MATT KETTMANN
