How It's Made
The grapes are destemmed, pressed, then cold settled in stainless steel tanks before moving to barrels for fermentation. Aged separately in French oak, the wine completes 92% malolactic fermentation, is then sur lie aged and stirred every two weeks until ﬁnal blending in May, followed by bottling in June.
The winter of 2018‐2019 brought above average rainfall to the North Coast, with the bulk of the rain falling from January through May. Spring temperatures were moderately cool, and that led to warmer weather in August through October and ideal conditions during harvest. The end of August saw a bit of a heat wave, but the month of September was perfect for ripening. The white wines grape harvest was ﬁnished on October 7th.

Dungeness Crab Cakes with Meyer Lemon Aioli
The secret to the success of this recipe is quality crab meat, and here in Northern California during the winter, Dungeness Crab is pretty plentiful. These crab cakes are delicious paired with any one of our Chardonnays, but we especially like it with the Reserve.
