Winemaker
Nancy Walker.
With 22 years of winemaking experience, Nancy has honed her skills with North Coast fruit having formally been the winemaker for Fetzer and Brutocao. Heeding a minimalist winemaking ethos, Nancy crafts varietal specific wines without infringing upon the inherent aromas and flavor profiles imparted by the diverse California terroirs.
 
Wine Taste Profile
Flavors and aromas of fresh cut apples, juicy pears, tropical pineapple, vanilla cream soda, crème brulee, and bright acidity. Long fruit finish.
 
Barrel Regimen
The wine is sur lees aged for 8 months with battonage (stirring the lees) for 3 months. Aged in roughly 20% new French oak barrels; 40% older French oak, and 40% stainless steel to keep the fruit bright and crisp.
 
Vineyard Information
This wine comes from several vineyards in the Russian River Valley, each contributing unique flavor and aroma profiles, while still showing off that inherent Russian River Valley duality of New World flavor and fruitiness combined with Old World mouth feel and palate weight. Warmer vineyard site, Syaar Family vineyard, provides New World flavors courtesy of the Rued, or Wente Clone of Chardonnay, known for imparting floral aromas and bright acidity. In the cooler zones of the valley, near Sebastopol, grapes are harvested from a vineyard nestled within ancient redwood forests known as the Walker blocks. Also surrounding the vineyard are 200 year old apple orchards, which no one has scientifically proven have an impact, but we like to think the bright green apple and tangy acidity imparting depth and length to the blend are made possible by the surrounding orchards...or at least the orchards show the grapes the way. Enjoy!
