Growing Conditions

The 2020 growing season had consistent sunlight and low rain totals that led to wonderful fruit development, as we’ve observed during the first month of harvest.

Harvest

The drought like conditions, however, did lead to yields about 20% below average. The vintage will be described as "quality over quantity" with all vinifera varietals on our farm harvested at exquisite sugar levels and ripeness.

Winemaking

Fruit for the 202 Reserved Chardonnay was sourced from vineyard blocks, 24, 32 & 37, and was initially fermented in a combination of oak barrels and stainless steel tanks.

Aging

After 8 months in American oak barrels of varying age, individual barrel lots were selected and blended with the stainless-fermented component to produce a rich final blend.
