2016 is the first vintage where we decided to make a vineyard designate from our Alana Vineyard Chardonnay. Set up in the hills between the town of Graton and Occidental in the Green Valley of the Russian River Valley, the Alana Chardonnay is made from heritage Wente clone that produces tiny clusters with intense concentration. We are over the moon happy with the quality this vineyard puts out. The wine has wonderful notes of lemon meringue, grilled pineapple and fresh-baked bread. The palate sings with rich toffee and vanilla bean notes while carrying a beautiful acidity that keeps the finish fresh and lingering.
Alana will be released on August 14th - save the date!
