Poseidon Vineyard, located at the confluence of Carneros Creek and the Napa River, was planted in 1973 by the Molnar Family to the Burgundian varietals: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The maritime environment of the Carneros grape-growing season delivers cool, foggy mornings followed by warm days that slowly nurture ripening. Winemaking: The fruit was pressed whole-cluster in small batches over the course of two weeks. A quarter of the juice was tank-fermented then aged in a single large oval cask, while the remaining 75% was barrel-fermented in large format 300L Kádár barrels in our temperature-controlled cellar. Partial malolactic fermentation was completed on a portion of the barrel-fermented lots to build up mouthfeel that helps to frame the natural acidity of the blend. The various components of these wines were finally blended right before bottling. Tasting notes: The vibrant acidity and intense fruit that this site is known for are on full display, evoking fresh green apples, Meyer lemon, and a pear tart with vanilla cream, all wrapped in a saline breeze o the Bay. For as crisp as it is, the mouthfeel nonetheless round and full, and the finish complex and long. 100% Chardonnay. Cooperage: 10 months in 20% new, light medium, medium and medium toast+ Kádár Barrels.
