Winemaker's Notes

Our Kite Tail offers an elegant, ethereal and fine-boned Chardonnay originating from the bluff top vines that see the thinnest soils and windiest days giving way to wines with bright citrus and apricot notes that finish with great length and shimmering minerality. Our 2017 Kite Tail is such a wine, vibrant, well knit and with a graceful, taut structure.
