+ GRAPE: 100% organic Napa Valley Chardonnay, grown at high elevation. Marine deposits over limestone soil. Dry-farmed.
+ PROFILE: Floral on the nose, and fruit driven - balanced by lively acidity on the tail. The Burgundian influence is not lost here; dare we say it's 'Chablis-esque'? Yellow apple, grilled white peach, iodine, and the softest suggestion of vanilla.
+ FUNDAMENTALS: Wild yeast, whole-cluster fermentation, full malolactic. Finished 10 months in neutral French oak barrels.
+ DEMYSTIFIED: And yes, it's 'Are-NOT-Roberts'! (They are not French :)
