Production Notes
We continue to improve our plantings at Conner Lee Vineyard selecting the 1989 old block and the newer clone #75 Chardonnays. We selected the best of these two harvests to whole cluster press. Fermented and aged in Burgundy puncheons on its lees for ten months, we blended and filtered just prior to bottling. Bottled young for freshness, this wine will age for five years or more. We share this as the reserve of the vintage especially made for our club members.
Winemaker Notes
A long history with this 1989 vineyard afforded us a predictable harvest with 2016 being again an early vintage. Our vine care is adapted to the hot sunny days and available water to carefully ripen our white fruits. Harvested the first days of September, the whites were full of flavor and balanced acidity. Fruit color was an ideal shade of pale yellow turning golden with ripe flavors and fresh acidity.
