2022 LV Chardonnay
Lafond Vineyard

The Lafond Vineyard Chardonnay is crafted from the oldest block of Chardonnay in the Lafond Vineyard. Set in the heart of the temperate Sta. Rita Hills, winemaker Bruce McGuire is able to harvest these vines later in the season to produce rich, concentrated fruit. Mature, deep vines cut through calcium rich soil, adding minerality and texture to the wine.

After fermentation the wine is left on its 'lies', a combination of yeast cells and sediment, periodically stirred, allowed to go through malolactic fermentation, racked and bottled almost a year later. The oak barrels, the yeast cells and the sediment all add complexity to the wine.

Tasting Notes
The Lafond Vineyard Chardonnay is produced from our oldest block of Wente clone which shows great depth of flavor, length of finish, aromatic complexity, and a fine balance between richness and delicacy. Enjoy flavors and aromas of citrus fruit, vanilla, oak, and baked apple pie. This wine will continue to build richness as it ages in the bottle.
