TASTING NOTES

Always one of EK’s most cherished sources year in, year out, Green Acres gifts us with excellent raw materials for naturally profound and brilliantly defined Chardonnay. For 2020 we blended in just a tiny amount of fruit from Zephyr Farms, a new-to-us vineyard perched above the chilly Freestone AVA and just a few miles from the Pacific.

This 5% addition of cracklingly bright clone 5 brought even more focus to Green Acres’ mighty depth and after an extra-long sleep on lees in 95% older French oak, we’re quite thrilled with what we captured in bottle.

There’s loads of classic Green Acres sweet-tart lemon curd, crunchy apple and lemon oil framed in just a whisper of French oak (roughly 5% new). The palate is full and wonderfully vibrant, and the long finish ends with a brisk, electric wash of freshness.

Striding the line between old world structure and new world exuberance, this cuvee is the one we reach for the most every year and will reward patience down the road for those willing and able to sock some away in the cellar.
