2015 Oro de Plata Chardonnay
Stone fruit, minerality, and great acid. Consistently this wine showcases the potential of Petaluma Gap Chardonnay. Enjoy.
The ancient seabed of the San Pablo Bay is mineral-rich, with clay soils that define La Cruz Vineyard. This site is located in the lower portion of the property and sheltered more from the wind. Typical to this vineyard is a bright acidity and signature spice notes. Planted here are Wente, Clone 4, and the Dijon clones 15 and 17. Oro de Plata Chardonnay is made predominantly from Wente clone, where we find that the tiny aromatic berries showcase this mineral, bright wine that we produce.
