This wine is a blend of our two Chardonnay blocks, the densely spaced Platt Wente Clone Block and our more traditionally spaced Clone 4 Block. The wine, as always, is barrel fermented utilizing both native indigenous yeasts and malolactic bacteria, which results in long, cool, and most importantly, complex multi-layered fermentations. This results in a chardonnay that has layers of flavors that evoke a number of different, and sequential, sensations on the palate. The initial impression is that of ripe red apple followed by citrus notes of lemon, lime and orange peel. On the mid-palate the wine exhibits a rich silky mouthfeel with just a nuance of well-integrated French oak.  Finally, the wine concludes with a lengthy finish that is supported by good, but not over-powering acidity.  The wine’s bright finish allows it to pair well with a variety of foods.  The two previous vintages of our Frostwatch vineyard bottling were well received scoring 92 and 93 points from Connoisseurs Guide to California Wines. The 2013 vintage also received 90 points from the Wine Enthusiast and Gold Medals from the 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Competition and the 2016 American Fine Wine Competition.  We are confident that this release will be as well received by the critics as well as our customers.
