Our ’07 Chardonnay hails from four vineyards, each chosen to contribute a special component to the blend. The northernmost vineyard, Riverview, comprises 26% and brings minerality and complexity to the blend. El Camino Vineyard, 58% of the blend, is planted to the Dijon clones 76 and 96 and brings intense perfume and concentrated fruit. The San Lucas and Scheid Vineyards make up the balance of the ’07 blend. San Lucas revels in bright tropical fruit flavors and a lively acidity, while Scheid contributes excellent structure and acidity. This quadruplet of vineyards creates a synergy where the whole is definitely greater than the sum of the parts.
