2017 Isabel Chardonnay
Our signature reserve Isabel Chardonnay is based on the Dijon Clone from the Rorick Heritage Vineyard, located just outside of Murphys, California. Planted in 1974, the vines are own-rooted in schist soils over a limestone bedrock on property owned by Matthew Rorick and his family. The vine age, elevation, and insanely, rocky soils create incredibly low yielding vines with the tiniest of clusters. The Isabel Chardonnay is barrel fermented in 100% new French Oak which gives it a full bodied flavor. This creamy Chardonnay is extremely well balanced by fresh acidity and a grainy texture, with aromas of peach and mango, all rounded off by a long finish.
