Neyers Chardonnay 304 (Unoaked) Sonoma County 2018
Winery notes: At Neyers Vineyards, we use the term ‘304’ to distinguish our bottling of Chardonnay fermented in stainless steel. It’s a wine made with no oak contact. The term ‘304’ was coined by the steel industry for ‘food grade’ stainless steel which has been used for high quality fermentation tanks since Ch. Latour introduced the idea to the wine world in the early 1960’s.
We found two vineyards that gave us these components -- the Paul Larson Vineyard on Burndale Road in Sonoma Carneros (a vineyard only a few hundred yards removed from the northern-most reach of the San Francisco Bay) and the Trinchero Family Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Both properties reach optimum maturity late in the growing season, and the cold weather and rocky soil is well suited for our style.
