Memorie II Chardonnay (2019 release)
The wine is produced from a solera that Seth started with in the 2015 vintage (with just a touch of 2014 juice added at the outset), so it is a multi-vintage blend that will get more complex with each passing year. The fruit comes from seven different vineyards and the blend is now composed of six different vintages, so it is progressing geometrically at this point.
The base of the solera has been in steel on lees for 12-60 months and is refreshed each year by a small portion of every lot of the next vintage to be bottled. A portion of the refreshed base is then blended with a portion of the better barrels of new oak and is bottled without fining or filtration. 40% new oak. 330 bottles produced.
