2017 One Sky Vineyard Chardonnay

Our One Sky Vineyard sits at 1,400ft on Sonoma Mountain - unusually high for Chardonnay, resulting in a unique and multi-dimensional wine. With warm, sunny afternoons and cool pockets of fog that hug the mountainside through the morning, the grapes ripen with a steadiness that we love to watch. Aromatic and mouth-filling with a finish that never seems to end, the 2017 has juicy, tropical fruit paired with opulent pear tart aromatics. We continue to be amazed by the quality of fruit from Sonoma Mountain.

Vintage
2017 was a vintage we will remember for a long time. After years of drought, we enjoyed a winter with record rainfall. Mother Nature was active, filling up dams and saturating soils while cleaning out salts that built up over time. Temperatures were cool, contributing to ideal fruit set and the season was on track for typical growth until heat waves arrived at the end of August into September. We picked some Pinot Noir prior to the heat spikes and gave the remaining vines water to let them develop further. While compressed into smaller picking windows, the grapes were perfectly developed and fermentation was steady. Thankfully, all our grapes were picked and wine was in barrel by the time the wildfires in Sonoma and Napa devastated nearby areas. Our vineyards were threatened but ultimately saved with the brave work of first responders. We are forever grateful for those who put themselves in harm's way to help save our livelihoods and for our good fortune during this atypical vintage.
