This Chardonnay comes from three different vineyards, two from the HIgh Plains and one from the Hill Country AVA. The first block is from the oldest Chardonnay block in the state of Texas. The span of age of vines runs from 35 years to 6 years old. Each vineyard and block are fermented separately and yeast and oak chosen according to clone, age and final grade prior to picking. This allows us the maximum choice of individual lots to choose from when it comes time to make the final blend.

While a lot of New World Chardonnays are much more buttery or oaky, we took an Old World approach to this fruit to maintain the more classic style for this wine. We used two different yeast clones specially isolated from some of the top Burgundy producers - which allows for such a large aroma profile as well as the full mouth feel of the wine itself.

Aromatics: Citrus flowers, gardenia and hints of passion fruit

On the palate: Deep fruit and balanced acid. Rich, creamy mid palate with hints of butterscotch, apples and tea.
