Ron Palmer planted Wente clone Chardonnay in 1983 with budwood sourced from Buena Vista. The fruit is as good now as it was then. So good in fact, that when Andre Tschelistcheff purchased the grapes back in the last 80's he declared them his best Chardonnay. We are proud to release the fourth vintage of this Single Vineyard Chardonnay with grapes from Ron's historic and pedigreed site.

Fermentation was conducted in a range of vessels, mostly neutral oak with just a touch of new, steam bent, French Oak to support but not overwhelm the fruit. A concrete Egg was utilized on a small portion to impart creaminess. Malo-Lactic was inhibited to preserve the bright acidity which is this wine’s hallmark.
