We weren’t sure what was going to happen naming a wine after the rusty old shed on our property, but the structure has become a well
photographed and renowned icon. The wine too has become just as well recognized for its elegance, character and complexity.

Tasting Notes

Our 2019 The Rusty Shed Chardonnay is the product of a humid, but moderate growing season followed by a warm and dry fall bringing optimal harvest conditions. This wine first shows citrus fruit coupled with chalky minerality, all vibrating around a backbone of acidity. The palate then opens up and highlights sweet spices and a creamy texture resulting from 10 months of development in French Oak barrels. Delicious now, but will age gracefully for a decade or more.
