Rorick Heritage Vineyard Calaveras County 48 cases
Our first Chardonnay couldn't be anything but old-vine, own-rooted Wente clone from Matthew Rorick's vineyard in Gold Country, where the soils comprise the unusual, exciting combination of limestone and schist. This wine is a natural beauty, no makeup required. Direct-to-press, and fermented in two neutral French oak barrels, it's balanced and bright; sunny and focused: the Golden State in a glass.
13% alcohol. Unfined, unfiltered and not cold-stabilized. Natural sediment will form in the bottle upon extended refrigeration.
