Winery Notes:
The Neyers Carneros District Chardonnay comes from fruit grown on three parcels: the Sangiacomo family Kiser Vineyard, the Donnell family El Novillero Vineyard and the Yamakawa family vineyard. Most of the Kiser and Yamakawa parcels are planted to 'Shot-Wente Selection' Chardonnay, a low-yielding, small berry variant of Chardonnay that has heightened flavor and increased complexity. The soil in each is high in clay so the natural nitrogen levels are elevated and the wild yeast fermentation is vigorous.
