We pick our Devaux Ranch Chardonnay grapes by hand at night or during the cool morning hours to ensure they arrive at the winery in pristine condition. These are kept separate and fermented at cool temperatures in small stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruit intensity. A few selected lots are aged in French oak barrels to add depth, complexity and spiciness to the final blend. Our 2012 Devaux Ranch spent 39 months en tirage, which fostered its wonderful complexity and rich, creamy character.Download Fact Sheet
