(Peter Michael purchased this property at the top of the estate, at an altitude of 2,000 feet, in 1998 and planted the vines in 1999, using Hudson, Hyde, Mt. Eden and Calera clones) Bright yellow. Crystallized yellow fruits complicated by spices, coconut, fresh herbs, smoke and earth, with mineral and fern nuances. Fat, sweet and hugely rich, with an open-knit texture and superripe pineapple flavor. But there's firm structure underneath. Offers uncanny persistence for a chardonnay from very young vines.
