Neyers Chardonnay Chuy's Vineyard 2011

This steep vineyard on the west face of Mt. Veeder sits at about 1,000 feet elevation, and is managed by Chuy Ordaz. The vines are 50 years old, and theyre dry farmed. Most importantly they are the heirloom version of ‘Shot Wente Chardonnay rather than a virus-free clone. The individual berries are small and flavorful; the low crop level allows for full ripening.
