Vagon Blanc Vertical

Vagon Blanc Vertical

This vertical offering includes one bottle from each of our two Vagon Blanc Vintages, 2013 and 2014, in a gift box. We set the target high for our Vagon Blanc, setting out to emulate a white Burgundy like expression of Chardonnay, drawing on four favorite hand-selected barrels from two memorable vineyards.

Give the man a cigar, they said, and we took them up on the idea, using larger cigar shaped barrels from Ermitage to achieve a lighter oak influence with a kiss of acidity. This Petaluma Gap/ Russian River mashup hits the mark, with a decided old world outlook balanced with a little new world sass.

We chose barrels from both of our Chardonnay vineyard sources:

  • Gaps Crown Vineyard in the Petaluma Gap of the Sonoma Coast
  • Vine Hill Vineyard owned/farmed by Jim Pratt in the Russian River Valley

Production: Four barrels in 2013, and six barrels in 2014

Clones: Mt. Eden | Robert Young | Dijon 76 | Dijon 96

There’s a toasty nuttiness with hints of sea salt caramel, married with mellow (not sweet) pineapple and lemon meringue. An extended journey in barrel allowed for added complexity. Old World, New World, Any World, this is a chardonnay to savor.

Winemaking:

  • Grapes were hand-picked and hand-sorted in the field and at the winery
  • 100% whole cluster pressed straight to barrel
  • 100% barrel fermented (yeasts are blend of native, CL2, CH9 & CY3079
  • 100% malolactic fermentation
  • Battonage once weekly through primary fermentation
  • Three barrels from Gap's Crown, Three barrels from Vine Hill
  • Aged sur lie for 17 months in 27% new French oak in 2013, and 15% new French oak in 2014
  • New French oak Cooper: Damy
  • Bottled 100% unfined and unfiltered
