This 2018 vintage started with a cool spring, with fruit set being consistent. The moderate summer temperatures, with very few heat spikes, gave for a perfect ripening season. This ideal weather allowed to harvest each block at the perfect ripeness, with excellent flavor development and the natural acidity just right. The long growing season produced wines with great structure and concentration. 

The ancient sea-bed of the San Pablo Bay is mineral rich, clay soils that define La Cruz Vineyard. Thirty-four acres are planted to chardonnay, in distinct blocks where clone 4, Wente and Dijon clones are planted. Typical to this vineyard is a pronounced bright acidity and signature spice notes.

More about the wine

This chardonnay was harvested in the cold night and came in at 23.3 Brix. The fruit was pressed using a gentle cycle, the juice settled for 12 hours prior racking in barrels where they went through primary and second fermentation. The 2018 La Cruz Chardonnay is filtered but not fined. The winemakers used Nomacorc 100 closure, with a specific low oxygen ingress rate, eliminating any oxidation. It is a 100% plant-based closure with a carbon neutral footprint, aligning with our mission.
