Bright, crisp and beautifully balanced, the Mail Road 2017 Chardonnay comes from 27 year-old vines at the world-class Mt. Carmel Vineyard, located in the center of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. Here, the combination of elevation, aspect, and soil composition, along with the constant winds and dramatic temperature variability, the vines produce exceptional fruit marked by deep concentration, remarkable depth, textural complexity and laser-like acidity. The Mail Road 2017 Chardonnay has a Chablis-like purity to it, with vivid and bright fruit character and incredible precision, all while pulsing with energy and all the pedigree that this rugged hillside site has to offer.
