Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Bohemian vineyard - green valley is located on the same ridge as the Famed heintz vineyard, only ½ mile away as the crow flies, just to the East above the sonoma coast town of occidental. In contrast to Heintz’s westerly slant, bohemian faces back to the east. This area is one Of the best for cool climate chardonnay and allows us to produce The focused and pure style we seek. The soils here are of the classic Goldridge series, light and well drained. The vines in this tiny plot are densely packed to 3x4 spacing to promote competition between the Hyde clone Chardonnay vines. Banshee is the sole recipient of this special fruit. The cooler growing season of 2016 allowed for delicate aromas and flavors to develop slowly in these Chardonnay blocks.
Production Notes
Whole cluster pressed and transferred to barrel for primary and malolactic fermentations over the course of 2 months. No lees stirring or racking. Aging for 15 months in French oak, 20% new (Chassin, Cavin, Damy).
Winemaker Notes
Our 2016 Bohemian Vineyard Chardonnay is lively and impactful with citrus blossom, honeysuckle, vanilla bean and lemon meringue for an added richness to balance out the vibrancy. The wine closes with an unctuous mid-palate and long persistent finish.
