2020 La Belle Promenade Chardonnay
This single vineyard Chardonnay bottling showcases a balanced medley of oak, citrus and floral notes with age worthy acidity and structure.
Aromas of orange blossom, green apple, cherry blossom, dusty chalk, and lemon drop candies lift from the glass. The palate is medium bodied and smoothly textured. Flavors echo the aromas and linger on the palate reminding us of a young Chablis.

Dry Farmed Using Organic Principles La Belle Promenade Vineyard is comprised of 33 acres of vines planted in 2014. The vineyard is home to volcanic soils ranging in diversity from a thick layer of fractured basalt in our shallow rooted southwestern blocks and deeper volcanic Saum soils in the southeastern corner of the vineyard. The crops we harvest from La Belle Promenade produce characteristic floral notes that cling to acidity and tell the story of the orchard fruits that once grew here.
