2020 Damiana Vineyard Chardonnay
Damiana Vineyard Chardonnay reveals minerality, tart citrus and tropical fruit characteristics, and has vibrant acidity and terrific balance.
Our oldest vineyard, planted in 1978, often produces our densest and most opulent Chardonnay. It’s exposure is primarily southwestern, which can mean more, which can mean more sun during the growing season; though this site is heavily influenced by maritime breeze most afternoons. Shallow top soils of fractured Lambert shale and mudstone limit vigor and lead to wines with great concentration and intensity. This vineyard is one of our first picks Estate Chardonnay.
