WINE OVERVIEW
This wine is crafted exclusively for our wine club members to showcase the versatility of the Chardonnay varietal. After experimenting with concrete cubes in 2016, we seized the opportunity to grow this club exclusive offering by doubling down on the number of our concrete vessels. Fermented and aged in concrete for 12 months, this wine is complex with bright subtle notes of wet stone, flint, white flowers, lemon curd, and grapefruit pith.

HARVEST OVERVIEW
On average, the 2018 vintage was a warmer and drier growing season. The vintage kicked off with an early bud break. June saw a cool, wet weather period during bloom, which put the vintage back on track for a traditional September harvest. Cluster sizes were smaller and more conducive to producing high-quality wines. The most notable climatic feature to the 2018 vintage, was our pleasantly dry and moderately warm harvest weather that continued into early November. This allowed us to pick based on ripe flavors and near-perfect natural acidity.
