Vineyard Notes:

The Chardonnay grapes for our Giuseppina come from our winery estate in Sonoma-Carneros. Marine effects from the nearby Pacific Ocean and the San Pablo Bay keep the region cool and extend the growing season, as overnight fog and afternoon winds mitigate summer heat.

Production Notes:

Grapes were hand-picked, de-stemmed, and then pumped directly to our tank press where the juice was gently extracted. The juice was pumped to a settling tank where it was cooled to 55 degrees F and then racked (decanted) to a fermenting tank. Pure wine yeast was added and fermentation temperature was held at 55 degrees to maintain the fresh fruit character. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was racked to 50% new French medium toasted oak for 4 months.

Winemaker Notes:

The 2012 Giuseppina is big-bodied with flavors of apples and vanilla. Enjoy this wine slightly chilled as an aperitif, or as an accompaniment to chicken with tarragon cream sauce, Dungeness crab, or Gruyère cheese.
