Our Monopole Vineyards were carefully selected for their exceptional soil, terroir, and ideal location. Alana, One Sky, and William James, all small-scale and organic, were established exclusively for Three Sticks, ensuring the precise fruit needed to craft our exceptional pinot noir and chardonnay. These remarkable sites yield wines of which we are immensely proud, consistently delivering excellence year after year.

VINEYARD NOTES

The 2022 One Sky Vineyard Chardonnay is from our Monopole vineyard, nestled on the heights of Sonoma Mountain. Uniquely elevated for pinot noir and chardonnays, our vineyard produces wines with layered complexity and multi-dimensional character. The name “One Sky” denotes its elevated perspective, gazing from San Francisco to the Sonoma Coast, a reminder that we all share one sky. Because of these convergent influences, the terroir allows for wines of distinct flavors and depth.

VINTAGE NOTES

In 2022, we saw a continuation of the drought in CA, with warm weather, early bloom, and long, slow flowering. Some of our vineyard blocks that flowered during the cold stretch did not set as much fruit as typical, so we saw lower yields for the year. While this isn't ideal from a quantity standpoint, quality was great, and things began moving along quickly. We started harvest in mid-August, a week or two earlier than "normal," and as we approached Labor Day, we saw a heat wave on the horizon. We were in a good spot and could bring in much of our fruit before the heat. The grapes we let hang through the heat were still a ways away from being ready to harvest. In recent years we have been leaving more leaves on the vines to help shade and keep the fruit on the vines from being scorched by the sun. This decision helped us this year in particular. After the heat, temperatures cooled in the region, and we were able to bring in the rest of our fruit in the weeks following. All in all, we are very happy with the quality of this vintage and thankful for our team rallying during this intense time of year.

TASTING NOTES

Light on its feet yet supported by a substantial backbone, the nose on this chardonnay welcomes you with a delicate interplay of brioche and fresh tropical notes, particularly guava. On the palate, a mouthwatering core unfolds, accompanied by nuances of spice and hints of orange peel—a vibrant wine with a lasting finish.
