Our Chardonnay vines on the Estate are now more than 20 years old, and their strength of character is becoming more and more apparent each vintage. First planted in 1992, these are among the oldest such vines in the new world and their low yields and early ripening ability have been a perfect match for our climate and soils.
Produced from some of the oldest Dijon clones on our Estate, the Chardonnay is hand-picked, hand-sorted and then pressed whole cluster. The juice was fermented in 100% French Oak barrels to create a round, rich texture. After 11 months in barrel, Véronique selected her favorite barrels, those that were distinct and delicious. The Edition Limitée Chardonnay has a rich texture and great length on the palate. Beautiful and compelling, this cuvée possesses all of the Drouhin hallmarks - elegant and balanced, all with great finesse.
