2016 Barndiva Perli Vineyard Chardonnay, Mendocino Ridge $40
Mendocino Ridge’s Perli Vineyard is one of the most unlikely locations for a vineyard in Northern California. At over 1700 feet of elevation and seven miles east from the Pacific Ocean, this rocky, steep vineyard requires meticulous farming. This wine is incredibly expressive and elegant; lovely green apple and crushed stone leading to a long finish.
2016 Barndiva Ferrington Vineyard Chardonnay, Anderson Valley $40
Anderson Valley’s Ferrington Vineyard was first planted in the late 1960’s, and some of the original vines are still producing. The climate is tempered by cool maritime air, with steep hills and mountains that surround the rolling alluvial terraces of this exceptional site. The vineyard has a gentle south-facing slope with soil that is mainly decomposed sandstone and clay soils.
