Wine Notes: 

One 12-bottle case of 2020 Stoller Family Estate ¡Salud! Cuvée Chardonnay.

The 2020 vintage will be one of the most memorable in our history. Rainfall during bloom coupled with cool temperatures set the stage for a historically low fruit set. The summer was delightfully moderate, and by the end of August, concentrated juice from tiny grape berries was intense with robust flavors. Harvest kicked off on August 28 and continued beautifully through Labor Day.

Then, we experienced a freak windstorm that resulted in wildfires due to hot temperatures and arid conditions. Our team decided to continue with harvest to preserve our grapes’ most honest and elegant expression, leveraging decades of winemaking expertise and cutting-edge techniques in doing so. We are fortunate to have achieved our quality standards despite the challenges presented.

– Kate Payne-Brown, winemaker

Winemaking:

The Chardonnay harvested from our vineyard is a true expression of our estate. The volcanic soil defines the expression of the fruit, embedding its origin into the DNA of the wine. It’s then shaped by the vessels in which it is made, and yet it still amplifies its terroir. Its vibrancy is harmony of its sense of place and the philosophy in which it is made.
