Poletti-Edna Ranch Chardonnay
The Poletti portion of our home vineyard, Edna Ranch, is named for the historic Italian Swiss dairy farming family who previously worked this land. The Poletti vineyard is on the mountainside slopes of Edna Valley. The slopes are south facing which aids the grapes to get the most heat and sunlight resulting in a warmer microclimate that can often be 10 degrees warmer than at the winery. The vineyard sits at a higher altitude receiving a moderating influence of cooler temperatures which helps the grapes maintain the natural acidity and fruit aromas.
Aromas of honeycomb, cantaloupe, lemon custard, and tarragon. Citrus flavors of candied orange and lime zest, with notes of kumquat, yellow peach and honeycomb. A consistent velvety texture throughout the wine and a light touch of toasted hazelnut on the finish.
