Hand-picked and hand-selected grapes. Gentle whole-bunch pressing followed by overnight cooling of the juice. Fermentation and subsequent maturation on the lees for a number of months in 50% first-use French oak vessels. Malolactic fermentation also occurred during this time. The wine was bottled in January 2017.

Gorgeous nose of caramelised citrus, roasted brioche, white blossom and ripe fruit trees. Deeply concentrated but with an overriding sense of purity and elegance. A sensational combination of richness and freshness, with beautiful concentration and crystalline clarity on the finish. Simply stunning. Production volume: 65 cases.

Pratt Vineyard is situated in the Russian River Valley AVA – an appellation that benefits from maritime influences and a cool climate, resulting in outstanding Burgundian varietal wines. Jim Pratt owns and farms the vineyard. A mere four rows of clone 15 were planted and cultivated on behalf of Cattleya, with the aim of producing the best possible Chardonnay fruit.
