The entry offers freshness and energy, where complex flavors of citrus, croissant pastry, and white aromatic flowers play in perfect harmony. This Chardonnay finishes with a crisp mineral note of fresh sea breeze, inviting a second sip.

Knights Bridge Estate Vineyard
About The Vineyard

Knights Bridge Winery’s sustainably farmed estate vineyard is located in the hills of Knights Valley where growing conditions yield intense yet balanced fruit flavors.


Winemaker Notes

Grapes were hand-harvested at night, sorted, destemmed, gently pressed, then thoroughly settled, and fermented cold for 30 days. 100% malolactic fermentation.


The 2021 vintage is a delightful discovery. A small harvest produced tiny Chardonnay clusters yielding deep and concentrated flavors.


Aging: 9 months in 10% new French Oak
