Anything but typical, the Alder Springs Vineyard white varietals are known for beautiful expressions of minerality and bright acidity. These are balanced perfectly by complex fruit flavors. Our Chardonnay vines produce elegant wines with a nervous tension akin to Grand Cru Chablis or Volnay rather than typical California productions.
