Winery Notes:
EFFORT is the companion label to our limited-edition Center of Effort wines. Each lot of the vintage is crafted in accordance with our vigilant standards of quality, all competing for the crown. However, only a handful of elite lots are ultimately destined for Center of Effort. What remains is our best effort of the vintage.

Stylistically, EFFORT Chardonnay exhibits a more approachable, fruit-forward style, bringing diversity and dimension to our portfolio of wines.

The 2008 vintage opens with brisk aromas of pineapple and guava. Sleek flavors of tropical fruit unfold with accents of green apple, peach, and mineral. An exquisitely weighted mid-palate concludes with luscious notes of citrus.

The grapes were picked at three stages of ripeness to create a natural range of flavor, texture, and acidity. Each lot underwent extended cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks for the retention of pure fruit aromas and flavors. Eighty percent of the wine was aged in neutral French oak barrels for enhanced texture and complexity.
