The small, five acre DuPratt vineyard sits on a ridge in Anderson Valley at an elevation of 1,550 feet, a few short miles from the charming seaside town of Elk. Planted in 1983 in upland timber sandstone soils, the fruit from this site distinctively reflects its mountainous locale, yielding wines with notable acidity and an appealing, rigid structure.

Vintage Notes: 

The 2013 vintage offered a variety of conditions. A rather dry January gave way to normal winter rainfall. As warmer weather arrived, bud break occurred in early April. Following a moderate summer, the firstweek of September brought very warm weather, along with a corresponding rise in sugar and malic acid levels. We rushed to pick all our fruit, with Pinot Noir harvest starting on September 9. Our 2013 wines are evocative of our 2006 bottlings.

Wine Profile: 

Our second release from the DuPratt vineyard is a shining example of Anderson Valley Chardonnay. Teeming with compelling minerality, this terroir-driven wine reveals fresh citrus zest, apple blossom and wet stone aromas. Powerful and precise, the solid backbone and lively acidity lead to flavors of crisp apple, fresh mandarin and honeysuckle. Higher elevation and pronounced coastal influences have yielded this lean and vibrant Chardonnay.
