The blend also includes fruit from Haynes, Heron Lake & Brosseau vineyards.
Vinification The Chardonnay grapes were gently whole cluster pressed and lightly settled. The juice was barrel fermented with native yeast and underwent full native malolactic fermentation.

Notes Citrine is a gemstone of “yellow quartz”. Citrine Chardonnay is made with an eye towards a balance of golden California sun and a gentle kiss of minerality.
