Winemaking Notes: This skin fermented Chardonnay hails from the Santa Cruz Mountains, defined by it's mountainous, maritime climate. The Chardonnay was sourced from the organically farmed Langley Hill Vineyard. The fruit was harvested in late September and macerated whole cluster with two months of skin contact fermentation.

Tasting Notes: This is an orange wine for beer and cider lovers! This wine starts and ends with a bright acidity that is neither harsh or sharp. On the nose, there are hints of dried peach and apricot. A continuing dried fruit on the palate, with notes of tangerine pith and dried citrus. This all leads to a dry, firm finish with notes reminiscent of a dry hard cider.
