Grown under a biodynamic regimen in Grgich's American Canyon and Carneros vineyards, this ferments without added yeast in oak barrels (40 percent new); it does not go through malolactic fermentation. At first, the oak battles with the acidity in the orange citrus flavors until they slowly combine into savory fruit richness. Hints of fennel add to the wine's complexity, bringing to mind accompaniments such as rabbit pate or blanquette de veau.

Bright yellow with gold and green highlights. Musky white peach, hazelnut, ginger and floral honey on the nose and offers a sexy sweetness on entry, then shows moderate density but good lift in the middle. Intriguing soil tones contribute to an impression of subtle complexity. Gained in weight and harmony as it opened in the glass. There are nearly 30,000 cases of this Chardonnay.
