This is our most well-known and widely-recognized wine. It is always a blend of predominantly Chardonnay along with a selection of the finest white grapes from the vintage across our vineyard holdings. The various grape varieties are hand-harvested as soon as the Chardonnay reaches its optimal maturity. Once the grapes arrive to the cellar, they are crushed and pressed together for fermentation en assemblage in new French oak barriques. Part of the wine sees malolactic fermentation, after which it is matured for another 10 months in barrique with frequent battonage and then bottled. A limited selection of bottles is aged an additional four years in the Schneeberg mine to further enhance the vibrancy of the final blend.
