2013 446 Chardonnay

Throughout centuries of cultivation, winegrowers have paid close attention to their vines, watching for beneficial changes as the plants adapted to their site and growing conditions. They selected those with exceptional attributes and propagated them by cuttings from the original vine into the vine types we call “clones”: genetically identical vines that are prized for specific characteristics. Bud break, berry color, disease resistance, soil or climate suitability, cluster size, yield, flavors, aromas and how the grapes ripen are just some of the many traits that can be managed through careful clonal selection and cultivation.

Clones perform at their best when they are put to work in the type of soil and climate from where they originated. Chardonnay favors cool conditions, and Monterey’s coastal climate — with afternoon breezes, evening fog and a long growing season—is perfect for growing excellent Chardonnay grapes. Clone 4 does especially well in Block 46 of our San Bernabe Vineyard, which is in one of the coolest growing regions in California.

From the Wine Maker – “446 Chardonnay exhibits appealing aromas of golden delicious apple, ripe apricot, pineapple and melon. Medium-bodied with a creamy mid-palate, this delightful wine offers flavors of peach and hints of toasty vanilla spice.”

446 Chardonnay can be enjoyed on its own, or with soft cheeses, roast fowl and baked yams.
