Story

The “On Skins” Chardonnay is from Heron Lake vineyard in Wild Horse AVA.  A later pass in the vineyard on a higher block.  This is the first time for John experimenting with skin contact whites.  White wine made like a Red wine in John’s view.  John made about a barrel of this wine.  10 case allocation for us on the East Coast.
