2017 H. Klopp Vineyard Chardonnay
Our first Chardonnay release, the 2017 comes from H. Klopp vineyard located in Sebastopol, California. Planted and farmed specifically for Reeve by legendary grower Ted Klopp and his daughter Lauren. Lemon zest, ripe golden apples, vanilla bean all come together with a laser focused finish that lasts and lasts.
+ H. Klopp was planted specifically for us in 2014 by the Klopp family with clonal selection and design input.
+ The vineyard sits on very fine, well drained Goldridge soils.
+ This Chardonnay is a blend of 4 clones; Robert Young, Mount Eden, Clone 4 and Old Wente.
+ Barrel fermented and aged for 18 months in a mix of new (25%) and used (50%) French oak with one stainless steel barrel (25%).
+ This vineyard is prized by us for its ability to develop full flavors but maintain excellent freshness and focus.
