GhostWriter 2019 Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

Strangely, we harvested the 2019 on exactly the same two dates that we harvested the 2018 though yields were significantly lower this vintage. Not surprisingly, 2019 is a bit deeper, richer, weightier, more concentrated in a word. It still has great acidity and length, but fills the palate more. The 2019 is 79% Woodruff Family Vineyard and 21% Amaya Ridge. The two lots were kept separate with the Woodruff being fermented and aged in concrete and the Amaya in wood. Post-fermentation, the wine was left sur lies during the Malolactic fermentation and the 12 months following. The blend was made and left for another 7 months in a small oak foudre and small barrique size barrels. The end result is still consistent with what we have come to expect from this wine, a very long on the palate, mineral driven, oxidative Chardonnay that has the acid and texture to age. Bottled unfiltered and unfined. 

The Ghostwriter is about Santa Cruz and it’s many terroirs, old heritage vineyards, and the light, acid driven, pretty, perfumey style of wine that it is capable of. “Ghostwriter” represents the idea that a wine may be the pages that contain a story, but that the story itself belongs to the sites, the vines, and the vintage. The winemaker, when successful, may be a lively storyteller, but only that. Winery Notes
