Named after owner Barbara Banke's eldest daughter, Katherine's is a blend of different blocks comprised of both old clone Chardonnay and cutting edge plant material. Each of the 34 blocks of Chardonnay, planted in sand and granite soils, are farmed on an individual basis and the expression from each block is wholly unique. The resultant wine is the sum of this diversity, a Chardonnay with a spectrum of fruit flavors ranging from mango to meyer lemon and a rich texture framed by refreshing natural acidity.
A beautiful Chardonnay, the 2011 Chardonnay Katherine’s Vineyard is pure and detailed on the nose with crisp white peach, white flowers, crushed rock-like minerality and hints of creme to go with a medium-bodied, balanced and focused texture. Crisp, pure and downright delicious, enjoy it over the coming handful of years. Drink now-2016.
