Tasting Notes

As this glorious block of older vines reached the end of it’s useful life we were blessed with a stunning last “Hurrah!” and our Green Acres Hill chardonnay goes out with a bang. Struggling with infirmity for the last several years, the absurdly low yields of (wonderful) fruit just weren’t profitable any longer for the grower. Don’t fret, however – we’ve got a worthy replacement just around the corner!

This final, very limited bottling is an intense and racy rendition of Green Acres Hill fruit. The bright, saline kick on the nose might give it away but wait until you get a taste. Bold lemon curd and baked apple and quince are all here – hallmarks of the Old Wente chardonnay clone that make Green Acres such a complete experience.

Stirred in barrel and puncheon every day for three months, we bottled it unfiltered to preserve every single ounce of goodness. An absolute do not miss.
