Mountain Estate Vineyard

Planted in 1999, our Mountain Estate Vineyard, Chardonnay, is rooted in steep, rocky soils at 1,300 feet elevation, and planted with the 45 degree fall line on our only northeast-facing slope. Owing to this particular aspect, these vines receive cooler morning light and minimal exposure to any hot afternoon sun, which has proven ideal for the gradual ripening and maximum maturation of Chardonnay grapes.

Fisher's 2016 Chardonnay Mountain Estate Vineyard is bold, luscious and absolutely delicious. Orange peel, lemon confit, apricot, mint, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes all flesh out in this ample, super-expressive Chardonnay. Classy and polished, the Mountain Estate is also the more understated of the two Fisher Chardonnays.

The 2016 Mountain Estate Vineyard bursts from the glass boasting bright white floral and jasmine aromas that mingle with hints of limestone minerality. On the palate, this bold Chardonnay remains lively with flavors of Key lime citrus, lemon curd and subtle, toasted hazelnut richness. This vintage shows beautiful restraint with a long, lingering finish.
