2014 Chardonnay, 'EFFORT'

Bright natural acidity, rich palate and vibrant.  Fermented by native yeast and aged in neutral and once-filled French oak barrels, concrete vessels and a few acacia-wood barrels.  Complex, but pleasing and fruit-driven.

EFFORT is the companion label to our limited-edition Center of Effort wines.  Each lot of the vintage is crafted in accordance with our vigilant standards of quality, all competing for the crown.  However, only a handful of elite lots are ultimately destined for Center of Effort.  What remains is our best effort of the vintage.

Stylistically, EFFORT Chardonnay exhibits a more approachable, fruit-forward style, bringing diversity and dimension to our portfolio of wines.
