2017 EX Unoaked Chardonnay
With a name meaning “out of” in Latin, EX speaks to our focus on expressing the personality and characteristics of our Certified Sustainable (SIP) estate vineyard. Our 2017 EX Chardonnay comes from the original 35-year old, own-rooted Clone 4 planted on our estate vineyard. It is fermented (primary only) and aged for 3 months in stainless steel. The resulting unoaked wine is bright and crisp. Aromas of citron and pineapple combine to add a subtle tropical note to the nose. The palate counters with lively stone fruit and citrus and a noticeable but balanced acidity.
