SAMPLING OUR DRY-FARMED TINAQUAIC CHARDONNAY BEFORE HARVEST!

Foxen's dry-farmed Tinaquaic Vineyard is home to our estate Chardonnay, Syrah and Cabernet Franc.

The Chardonnay portion is made up two different clone varieties - Wente and Clone 4. Wente are typically smaller clusters, while Clone 4 are bigger and more acidic. The Clone 4 block is Chardonnay grafted to Merlot rootstock!

Yesterday, Billy took samples of our Chardonnay for testing and tasting before harvest in a week or two.

"Hens and chicks!"

"It's looking like a huge crop this year! Pretty healthy for no irrigation! Haven't seen one like this since the '90's!" - Billy
