Highlighting lush flavor, bright acidity and impeccably balanced French oak, Migration is dedicated to crafting wines from the finest cool-climate wine growing regions. Located in the coolest part of the Russian River Valley, and farmed by the legendary Dutton family, we have been fortunate to work with Jewell Ranch for over a decade. Offering lovely depth and texture, enticing white flower aromas and vibrancy layers of honeysuckle, lemon chiffon and apple, this is a bright and captivating expression of cool-climate Chardonnay.

Winemaker Notes
This bright and vivacious expression of cool-climate Chardonnay offers enticing aromas of pineapple, lemon zest and white flowers. On the palate, it displays lovely depth and texture, with vibrant layers of honeysuckle, lemon chiffon and apple gliding to a long, lush finish.
Production
While the 2020 North Coast growing season began with a mild winter and less than average rainfall, there was enough precipitation to provide ample soil moisture. After an early and ideal budbreak, temperate weather throughout spring and summer produced balanced canopies and steady shoot growth, with relatively small berries. Mid-August brought a week of temperatures over 100º F, providing a final push towards optimal ripeness for our Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and select Pinot Noir vineyards. While late-season wildfires in Northern California brought logistical challenges, we were able to successfully pick our North Coast vineyards during a very busy, truncated harvest, resulting in beautifully pure and aromatic white wines, and lush, spicy and concentrated reds.
