Our Chardonnay vines are from our oldest vineyard, planted in 2002 and expanded in 2003. We do not bottle our Chardonnay wine but use it as a blending grape in our Sauvignon Blanc wines where it comprises about 5% to 10% of the Sauvignon Blanc. It is used to round out the green aromas and citrus bite of the Sauvignon Blanc grape.
