This bottling is comprised of 100% estate chardonnay from our Machado vineyard.
15 acre parcel on the Machado family land is located adjacent to Clos Pepe and immediately behind the Kessler-Haak vineyard. The site is marked by a gorgeous rolling terrain with sandy clay loam soils. There are a few blocks planted to Sweeney Canyon clone chardonnay.
Only neutral Sirugue barrels are used for 12-18mos. Whole Cluster pressed chardonnay. We do not promote or prohibit malolatic fermentation, allowing wine to be in balance, bright and elegant.
All of the single vineyard wines are produced with the intention of aging and cellaring for at least 10 years and can easily be enjoyed after 15 years.
