Reserve Chardonnay


2022 - PreRelease


Chardonnay is a cornerstone varietal at Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard. Hermann first planted these vines in 1978 and produced an estate Chardonnay every year from 1981 onward. Those vines are still in production in our HJW Vineyard, providing mineral and acid backbone. Fermented and aged in a combination of stainless steel and large format Hungarian oak, the result is a mineral driven wine with a broad mid-palate and clean finish.
