2015 Pratt Vineyard, Vine Hill Road Chardonnay

Russian River Valley

Most everyone knows that Jim Pratt is a grower we truly admire, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that when the opportunity for a little Chardonnay from Vine Hill presented itself, it was a run, don’t walk situation. On the edge of Green Valley near Forestville in the Laguna Hills region, legendary vintner neighbors all around this vineyard are just one clue that something very special is happening here.

"This Chardonnay has all the exuberance of the Russian River appellation - powerful and seductive in texture with the perfect backbone of acidity.  I love the flinty notes you get in the nose and thread of minerality that carries through layers of yellow stone fruit and hints of toast that persist through a lengthy finish"         - Matt Courtney, Winemaker

Winemaking:

Grapes were hand picked and hand sorted in the field and at the winery

  • 100% whole cluster pressed straight to barrel
  • 100% native fermentation
  • Aged sur lie for 11 months in French Oak, 20% new
  • Bottled 100% unfined and unfiltered August 2016

Clones: Mt. Eden, Robert Young, and Dijon 96

Production: 284 cases
