2018 Alana Vineyard Chardonnay

2018 Alana Vineyard Chardonnay

The Alana Vineyard is one of our coolest, most mystical vineyards, planted within a sea of majestic California Redwoods. It is typically picked later in the growing season allowing for a vivacious concentration in the fruit without losing acidity. Our third vintage bursts with lemon verbena, candied ginger and nutmeg on the nose, while grilled pineapple and caramel will tantalize your palate. A consistent favorite among the team, this chardonnay is our Grand Cru and unlike any other.

This wine was part of our Fall Release. Please inquire to order, or join our club to gain access.

More Information
2018 was one of those magical years. With a mild spring, the early growing season plodded along at a relatively normal pace. Once the berries set, we knew we had a healthy and full crop. So full, in fact, we did a number of fruit-thinning passes to reduce load on the vines. Even with this, we were happy to see an above average harvest with superb quality. We started picking in earnest after Labor Day, with cool, fall weather that allowed us to transfer the grapes in a calm and measured pace. All in all, 2018 will go down as a year to remember, with wines of true depth and power.
