2021 Ceritas 'Carex' Chardonnay Sonoma Coast, USA
The vineyard was planted in 2004, using a unique selection of Old Wente Chardonnay, renowned for producing tiny clusters of zippy Chardonnay. The site is planted meter by meter, requiring the vines to ripen 10-12 clusters, resulting in a depth of flavor and complexity similar to Porter-Bass. Porter-Bass is cultivated using the same selection of Old Wente. Being so closely planted, the fruit sees little in the way of direct sunlight allowing the skins to thicken and provide a tannic backbone which should result in a wine from this vineyard aging a long time.
