The 2015 vintage was a wonderfully long and balanced growing season, with an early budbreak at the end of February and slow ripening through August and into September. We picked our Chardonnay by hand, at dawn. The grapes were whole-cluster pressed and the juice fermented in 20% new French and American barrels, then aged 20 months in oak. The 2015 has a lightly green-tinted yellow-gold color. Gracefully aged and medium bodied, with stone fruit and exotic honeyed notes, and a touch of butter and brown sugar. A very pretty wine ... Less voluptuoius and more balanced than 2014; more curvacous and still more toned than 2013.
