Description

Our 2019 vintage of “Wester Reach” Chardonnay is a multi-layered interpretation of this classic region where we live and farm. It includes some of the greatest sites in the appellation – vineyards that we have planted, farmed and harvested for close to twenty years. Comprising three of the region’s unique sub-districts, the wine blends fruit from the valley itself with vineyards further west, stretching out to the coolest ‘reaches’ of the appellation’s high elevation coastal ridges. Each district contributes something unique, be it valley-floor richness, ridgeline density or coastal vibrancy.

Wine Enthusiast – 98 Points

Rounded with a rich mouthfeel of oak and tropical fruit, this wine offers layers and layers of complexity, structure and nuanced acidity. The classic elements of apple, pear and hint of pineapple are topped in nutmeg, ginger and tangerine. 10/2021 —VIRGINIE BOONE

Wine Spectator- 94 Points

Powerfully fresh and minerally, this complex white features concentrated pear tart and apple pastry flavors that are filled with crunchy acidity, showing hints of custard. Ends with buttery accents and tropical fruit notes on the richly spiced finish. Best from 2022 through 2027. 1/2021 KM
