Highland Divide Chardonnay 2017


Case Format: 6x75cl

This wine displays the wonderful combination of glycerin and vibrancy naturally achieved in these coastal sandstone soils and benevolent, foggy climate. It’s a deeply concentrated, beautifully textured wine from the lowest-yielding chardonnay vintage in 20+ years, and is a perfect representation of our refined house style: rich yet vibrant, power offset by intensity, precision, length and detail. The wine shows toast, mineral and slate aromas with notes of apple and pear opening to honeyed citrus, thyme blossom, with fennel and lemongrass freshness. The deeply concentrated palate of orchard fruits and apricot preserve reveals a lovely flinty mid-palate character with spearmint and botanicals. Fine persistent length with lots of nuance and detail.

Also from the Russian River Valley, the 2017 Chardonnay Highland Divide comes from the cooler Green Valley region and a slightly higher elevation site (it’s still in the fog layer though). Lots of citrus, lemon curd, and orange blossom notes as well as some salty minerality emerge from this rich yet racy white. A great example of the vintage with its sweet fruit and bright acidity, it’s balanced, with terrific purity of fruit and a great finish.

The 2017 Chardonnay Highland Divide was barrel fermented and aged 12 months on the lees in 33% new oak. Its toasty on the nose with loads of spices over a core of ripe peach, apricot and nectarine, honey, crème fraîche, citrus peel and crushed shell. Light to medium-bodied, it offers a good interplay of mineral and savory character with tangy acidity and a very long, focused finish. 950 cases produced.
