The idea of making a wine that has character and individuality is every winemakers goal, no different than our goal in these chardonnays. With the exception being that we are not making these wines with any personality, we are making them as "portraits" of our three daughters, intricately planned and executed. A painstaking process in selecting clones that would match the unique character of each, paired with individually custom made barrels and finishing with meticulous winemaking. Their natural beauty amplified by omitting typical winemaking tools: cultivated yeasts, artificial nutrients and the over use of sulfites for preservation. These wines are natural and will display textures and nuance not typically seen in other wines.
The result of this journey, an intriguing experience and a lesson in patience.
