The Hendry Vineyard lies on gentle, rocky slops between 200 and 300 feet in elevation. The style and structure of their wines is moderated by cool breezes and fog from San Pablo Bay. The Barrel Fermented Chardonnay is a blend from Block 9, Block 20, and Block 21. Whole-cluster pressed and cold settled, barrel fermented sur lie and aged in French oak barrels for 11 months.
