This truly stunning Chardonnay is at another level. Vines over 40 years old, no fining or filtering this is truly wonderful.

Winemaker John Lockwood learned his craft first with the legendary Ted Lemon at Littorai. Lemon is the only American winemaker to have run a top-notch white Burgundy domaine (Roulot in Meursault). Then he worked with Ehren Jordan at Failla.

He makes only eight barrels, or 200 cases, of this incredible Chardonnay. We have 5 of these cases now with a dozen more on the way.

The only new barrel is from the famed Hayne Vineyard in Napa. (Site of Turley’s top wines.) 75% of it is from the extraordinary Rorrick Vineyard, with 45-year-old, ungrafted Wente clone.

Barrel fermented with native yeast in 7 neutral and one new French oak barrel, unfined and unfiltered, the works. And only 12.5% alcohol in spite of all its concentration and flavour. 

Lockwood says:

Citrine is a gemstone of “yellow quartz”. Citrine Chardonnay is made with an eye towards a balance of golden California sun and a gentle kiss of minerality. "2018 was a remarkable vintage and the 2018 Citrine is a complete wine from start to finish, with near perfect balance in its components. Shimmering with life and energy, this comes as close to bottled sunshine as it gets. Based on how it tastes on day 3 of being open, it should evolve and age as well, for those bold enough to lay a few bottles down.
