Justice Vineyard sits on a ridge known as Holmes Gap, rolling southeast at 550 feet in elevation. The Van Duzer Winds rip through the gap and funnel their currents east. Because of this exposure, the fruit ripens much more slowly and retains bright acidity. The Chardonnay block sits on a transition of marine sedimentary soils.

 

The 2017 Justice Chardonnay begins its journey at this special site on 18-year old vines, which give it a viscosity that comes across as almost oily. This wine has focused aromas of fennel, wet gravel and mixed citrus focusing on tangerine and hints of nectarine swirled with flint. The palate is muscular with mouthwatering acidity and a long bright finish.

 

This wine was fermented with ambient yeast and minimal bâtonnage. It is then aged in mix of 350L barrels and standard 228L barrels, puncheons of which 60% are new. The wine is then racked just before the coming vintage and blended in stainless steel for an additional 3 months prior to bottling.
