Situated on the Mendocino Ridge at1600' elevation, the DuPratt Chardonnay is intensley aromatic on the palate with an acidity that carries flavors of Meyer lemon and saline.

Vintage Notes: 

2018 was a very cool growing season that allowed us to leisurely pick grapes over a long period of time. This cool weather allowed us to have many dif erent wines picked at various levels of ripeness and f avor development, while maintaining ideal sugar levels. This gave us a diverse group of wines to blend from at our blending session.

Vineyard Notes: 

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 ref ects its mountainous locale, yielding wines with notable acidity and an appealing, rigid structure.

Wine Profile: 

Aromas:: Baked Golden Delicious apples, roasted cashew, matchstick

Palate: Medium weight on the palate. Meyer lemon, saline, mineral.
