2016 Chardonnay Justice Vineyard

 Justice Vineyard was established in 1999. It sits adjacent to Bethel Heights on the south, at a slightly lower elevation, where the underlying primeval sea-floor is tilted up and exposed to the surface below a very thin layer of volcanic topsoil. Grapes grown on these ancient marine sediments have a very different life experience from those grown in the volcanic soils at Bethel Heights. The wines from Justice tell that tale quite dramatically. 

Fruit from Justice Vineyard has been an important component in Bethel Heights’ Estate Chardonnay for years. With time, the wines from Justice have become increasingly compelling, and more importantly, distinctive from the Chardonnays from Bethel Heights. In 2014 we bottled our first Justice Vineyard designated Chardonnay. For a full fact sheet click here.

Production notes

The fruit was whole-cluster pressed, and barrel fermented in eight 228 L barrels and four 500 L puncheons. The wine was aged on the lees with complete malolactic fermentation, and bottled after 16 months in barrel.
