Texture 2017 Rued Vineyard Chardonnay 

The Rued Vineyard is a natural fit for illustrating a classic Chablis approach to California Chardonnay. Planted 50 years ago, the site is one of the oldest Chardonnay plantings on the West Coast, and the tiny block used to craft this wine is the last remaining from the original cuttings in 1969. By harvesting the fruit early, when acid levels are higher, we successfully captured the Rued Vineyard’s signature aromatics and rich mouthfeel while achieving the precise structure and poise that are the benchmarks of all Texture wines.
