Each Chardonnay lot was kept separate throughout the aging process. After sending the fruit directly to press, the juice was fermented in seasoned French oak barrels (45 percent new). The lees were stirred every other week to integrate the subtle oak notes and develop a polished texture. Winemaking is focused on showcasing the unique characteristics of Oak Knoll Chardonnay at the highest level, and achieved that with the final blend made after 10 months of aging in barrels.

Reviews:

"Pure, crisp and zesty, with a lively mix of green apple, pear, honeydew and citrus flavors. Light toasty oak joins in on the finish. Drink now through 2020." -Rated 91, Wine Spectator

"Heady oak aromas lead the nose of this silky, rich wine sourced from a cool site on the producer's own Big Ranch Vineyard at the southern end of the valley. Golden honey notes add to its luxurious nature, contrasting the linear infusion of tart lemon zest, orange peel and nutty spice flavors. Editors’ Choice." -Rated 93, Wine Enthusiast
