“Shale and Stone” on the 2018 label is reflective of nearly a decade of
experimentation to arrive at a style that celebrates the deep minerality of its ancient fractured shale soils and preserves the freshness of the varietal with long sur lie aging in concrete.
The result is this stunning Chardonnay: taut but generous, full yet bright on the palate.
Flavorful but not obvious.
A unique combination of barrel fermentation followed by extended “sur lie” aging in concrete vats. Balance and restraint in a varietal not always associated with these traits.
