A true reflection of the winery’s Grace Benoist Ranch estate vineyard, this wine is a blend of the best blocks on the Ranch, tucked away in the far northwest corner of the Carneros appellation. Unlike most Carneros vineyards, which are largely uplifted bay bottoms with soils composed of clay, the soils on Grace Benoist Ranch are variations of volcanic origin. Combining these well-drained, rocky upland soils with the extreme western location closer to San Pablo Bay, make this cooler site an ideal place to grow Burgundian varieties.

Tasting Notes

Pleasing aromas of Meyer lemon, apple blossom and white peach begin the nose of this inaugural vintage of Etude Chardonnay. On the palate, the wine has lively acidity, purity of fruit and a hint of minerality as well as a light cream chiffon texture. Mandarin orange and spice notes contribute to a long finish.
