6 barrels of Rorick Family Vineyard (45 year old own-rooted Wente Clone) Chardonnay vines planted to a base of limestone and clay in Calaveras County, one barrel of Haynes vineyard Chardonnay planted to Volcanic ash and stone and one barrel of Heron Lake Vineyard to add complexity and depth to this classic California blended Chardonnay. A terrific effort!
