This vineyard site slopes 40 feet South to North with terrific sun exposure throughout the day and into the sunset. This is a field blend of French clone 95 and clone 76. These wines tend to show their Burgundy heritage.

The 2016 Chardonnay North Slope Vineyard simply sings of beautiful orange blossom, ginger and coriander seed notes with a core of spiced pears and Golden Delicious apples. The palate is medium-bodied with quite an understated, restrained expression in the mouth, featuring a quiet intensity of savory flavors, finishing on a mineral note. 938 cases produced.
