Ever since Demi Moore sipped this wine before her tryst with Michael Douglas in Disclosure, it's only been the most-wanted Chardonnay in the world. Still the one to beat.

Drought-like weather and a constant inversion layer created favorable conditions at our Pahlmeyer Waters Ranch Vineyard throughout the 2013 growing season. At 1,800 feet elevation, our Chardonnay fruit sits above the valley fog, soaking in direct sunlight, yet cooled by delta breezes. The result were small berries that drove intense, concentrated flavors balanced with superb acidity and structure. Despite being the earliest harvest in years, our 2013 wines are stunning in their rich coloring and outstanding complexity.
