Wilde Farm Alder Springs Vineyard Chardonnay 2016
High above sea level, 12 miles east of the Pacific Ocean and 150 miles north of San Francisco, Alder Springs offers cool climate growing conditions and fractured sand stone soils that are perfect for nurturing truly world class vineyards. Paired with a management team that curates every vine, visiting each one 13 times a year, Alder Springs produces some of the most beautiful, balanced fruit in the world. While the average California grower expects yields of 20 pounds of fruit per vine, Alder Spring produce just 2 ½. Just enough for a single, spectacular bottle!
Transparent aromas of wet marble, petrichor and zesty citrus zest lead into flavors just as clean, fresh & bright. The mouth-feel is light and billowy with a streak of concentrated apple laced fruit; honeyed fig and mineral laden length that reveals a concentration & intensity that bode well for the future.
