2018 Chardonnay Musqué Clone
Winemaker Bruce McGuire seeks out the Musqué clone from the Lafond Vineyard to create this wonderfully aromatic Chardonnay. These vines benefit from the unique microclimate of the Sta. Rita Hills -- ocean fog in the morning, crisp coastal breezes, and gravel rich soil all contribute to the overall experience of this Chardonnay. This wine uses grapes picked at night, pressed with whole clusters, and barrel fermented.

The 2018 Lafond Vineyard Musqué clone Chardonnay is clear gold with emerald undertones. A beautiful bouquet of citrus blossoms, honeysuckle, and orange zest greets the nose. The aromas are followed by flavors of poached pear, candied pineapple and honey.
