Our Chardonnay is in barrel!

Our Chardonnay is in barrel!

The wait is finally over - our Chardonnay was harvested on October 11th and is in barrel right now fermenting. We taste it daily to see how it is evolving.

The wait is finally over - our Chardonnay was harvested on October 11th and is in barrel right now fermenting. We taste it daily to see how it is evolving. We are also out sampling our Cabs every other day to check flavors and monitor sugar, pH, and acidity, while determining processing actions. This includes everything from deciding how to de-stem the Cab fruit to choosing barrel profiles and coopers for the wines.

It's a busy, very productive time at the winery, while one year draws to an end and we simultaneously ready ourselves for next year's vintage.
