Featured Wine: 446 Chardonnay

“Not All Vines Are Created Equal.” Throughout centuries of cultivation, winegrowers have paid close attention to their vines, watching for beneficial changes as the plants adapted to their site and growing conditions. They selected those with exceptional attributes and propagated them by cuttings from the original vine into the vine types called “clones”: genetically identical vines that are prized for specific characteristics. Bud break, berry color, disease resistance, soil or climate suitability, cluster size, yield, flavors, aromas and how the grapes ripen are just some of the many traits that can be managed through careful clonal selection and cultivation.

>446 Chardonnay Clones perform at their best when they are put to work in the type of soil and climate from where they originated. Chardonnay favors cool conditions, and Monterey’s coastal climate—with afternoon breezes, evening fog and a long growing season—is perfect for growing excellent Chardonnay grapes. {Noble Vines} marries the most admired vine types with winemaking innovation to craft wines with concentrated flavors, silky fruit and supple tannins – like {Noble Vines} 446 Chardonnay.
