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
Green apple and minerals on the nose coupled with a delicate balance of vanilla from new French oak. The palate is moderately creamy with notes of brioche and asian pear. Crisp and refreshing finish with a well-balanced liveliness that entices you to enjoy another sip.
Vineyard Notes
Despite receiving not quite average rainfall this winter, some of the later rains and the cool spring buoyed an early burst of growth on the vines. Even with the record-breaking heat as we entered harvest, our vineyard received little supplemental irrigation throughout the summer as our vine canopies matured and slowed without intervention. Harvest 2020 was a bit of a sprint. Starting a tad earlier and ending in early November, this vintage was one for the books which resulted with wines complex in both composition and flavor.
