This Holloran Chardonnay comes from our Le Pavillon vineyard in the Dundee Hills. The vines were planted in 1972 with the Draper selection of Chardonnay. They are own-rooted. 

This vineyard is farmed organic and biodynamic. These very old vines have deep roots, providing powerful ripening of the fruit, providing deep flavors and a very long finish. 
The soils are volcanic, Jory, a deep, ancient red silty clay loam. The elevation is 600’, with a south aspect. 
The substantial acid profile and fruit depth will help it age very well in a cool cellar for 8 – 15 years. In early years it will benefit from decanting.

The 2019 growing season started off warmer than average. After significant rains in early summer, we experienced consistent temperatures through the summer with no significant heat spikes. September brought more rains, which encouraged an early harvest.  We hand harvested and sorted, then pressed gently, and after settling moved to French oak barrels for fermentation and aging.
