Sourcing fruit from two vineyard sites, one in Carneros the other in the Russian River Valley, both vineyards were selected for their cool climate, necessary to keep the pH low and the total acidity high, and for their rocky soil base responsible for the characteristic minerality in the wine. The 2018 Chardonnay ‘304’ is especially lovely, with its combination of crisp acidity, refreshingly bright flavors and an expressive, lingering finish.
Winery Notes

California Grown, Chablis Inspired

Very few Chardonnays in the world are able to ride the line between old world and new world styles quite the way Neyers 304 Chardonnay does. Born from a love of artisinally made Chablis, this wine came about because of a particularly well-suited vineyard that effectively mimicked the terroir of Chablis. The vineyard is located in the coldest part of the Carneros District where vines are grown in the middle of an old creek bed that had been diverted 50 years ago, leaving behind a dense layer of rocks. It was planted to an heirloom Chardonnay selection that lent itself well to winemaking without the use of oak. The Chablisienne are known for making their Chardonnays in stainless steel, so it was christened “Chardonnay 304” after the wine industry’s name for stainless steel vinification tanks. What you’ll find in this bottle is pure fruit that offers plenty of Chardonnay classic aromas. Think golden delicious apples, with hints of pear and honeysuckle. On the palate it is lean and crisp, yet has plenty of generous apple and pear flavors echoing the palate, followed by just the right amount of acidity. The next time you feel like reaching for a crisp white, give this California-meets-Chablis hybrid a try!
