James' Review

Vaughn Dell and Linda Morice purchased the former Golders Vineyard in 2005 (planted in 1994). More recent vineyard plantings include 13 clones of pinot noir and eight clones of chardonnay, as well as a small amount of gruner veltliner. The vineyard is close-planted, ranging from 5100 vines per hectare for the gruner veltliner to 10 250 vines per hectare for the pinot noir and chardonnay. The wines are made with a minimalist approach: natural ferments, basket pressing, extended lees ageing and minimal fining and filtration.
