2019 One Ball Chardonnay
Like a butterscotch candy disappearing on your tongue… like the ethereal glint of rainbow dancing on the edge of a Swarovski crystal…
One Ball has evolved into beautiful perfection and after this vintage will fade gracefully from the scene. She was the stunning, pugnacious sister act to our Swaby Chardonnay. Vanessa Paradis with her gapped front teeth chirping sweetly while swinging boldly on a perch in a birdcage. If she were born today, One Ball would be Billie Eilish – a fierce and appealing anti-coquette for the ages.
We are humbled by the vineyard that was her origin and so pleased that our plans for her came to fruition. Au revoir, fille forte! Pressed to barrel, 10-15% new French oak for nine months.
