Situated at 2200' above the town of Boonville, and planted to numerous clonal selections; this Chardonnay has bright acid an aromatic quality of lemon with Golden Delicious apples.

Vintage Notes: 

2019 was a mild growing season with a small moderate heat push toward the end of the growing season. That warmth really pushed fruit into a beautiful ripeness at the end, without pushing things too far. We can look forward to generous fruit in the wines along with great balance.

Vineyard Notes: 

The Skycrest vineyard is planted on the eastern slopes of Anderson Valley outside the small town of Booneville. Planted at a staggering 2100 feet above sea level, this vineyard looks down on the rolling fog cover that blankets the valley below. The steep hillside with a southwest aspect allows this vineyard to receive the warmer afternoon sun exposure during the growing season. The high altitude, however, provides a thinner, cooler atmosphere that allows the fruit to enjoy a long hangtime and retain its acids

Wine Profile: 

Aromas: Pineapple, banana, guava

Palate: Pear, green apple, pie crust, dried wild oats
