Robert planted 4 acres of Chardonnay back in 1995 because it was his wife Mary Jane's favorite. Since then Midnight has produced a 100% estate Chardonnay from our low-yielding, concentrated vineyard. Our cooler westside climate and wonderfully acidic soils lend divine growing conditions that showcase the varietal in a clean style. The wine only goes through only 20% malolactic fermentation and is barrel aged in 20% new French oak to feature the grape and terroir of our estate vineyard.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Hints of yellow apple and lime peel meld with honeysuckle for an inviting nose. Meanwhile, lemon curd, vanilla, and white peach notes accompany a well-rounded mouthfeel with a smooth finish.
Ratings
88 points Wine & Spirits: Fairly rich, this posh white is chewy and succulent, with scents and flavors of pear and peach. Chill it for an aperitif.
Vineyard Notes
The 2018 vintage saw an almost ideal balance of vine health and stress, as is often the case with the first dry year after a very wet one. The rain came late, delaying the onset of bud break and the beginning of the growing season. The cool weather continued most of the year, punctuated by a six-week heat wave in July and early August. But temperatures moderated before picking began, and harvest proceeded under slightly cooler than normal conditions, producing fruit with intense flavors and good balancing acidity.
