Single Vineyard Portola Chardonnay 2017
This vineyard lies at the southeast end of the Dry Creek Valley AVA near the town of Healdsburg. The vineyard alluvial soil is very well drained, providing ideal growing conditions for rich Chardonnays with a well rounded flavor profile. Heavy winter rains recharged the soil after years of drought. A moderate summer made for a steady growing season, with the Dry Creek AVA being slightly cooler than usual.
