Zayante Chardonnay 6 Pack
2017 Chardonnay Zayante Vineyard / 6 bottles @ 33% OFF
Zayante Vineyard was a very special vineyard farmed by my friend Greg Nolton who retired a few years ago. We've been producing wines from Zayante for 18 years and 2017 was our last vintage. Located in the Upper Zayante area of the Santa Cruz Mountains and planted in 1988 on a southwest facing slope at 1,100 to 1,300 feet with Sandstone and loamy soils. Greg Nolton was a very skilled farmer. His vines were dry farmed and everything is organic. Greg grows his vines using old world methods that many modern day vintners may frown upon, but for us it is magic. The wines come out so expressive of his site that it is quite stunning, and the dry farming leads to unparalleled intensity.
The 2017 vintage only produced 2 barrels (49 cases) of wine.
