The Pratt Vineyard is located in the Russian River Valley a world-renowned AVA in California. The appellation benefits from a coastal influence and a cold climate both favorable for making outstanding wines from Burgundian varieties. The vineyard is owned and farmed by Jim Pratt. Only four rows of clone 15 were planted and are farmed carefully for Cattleya to produce the best clusters of Chardonnay grapes. Thanks to the intensity and complexity of fruit produce from this site the Cattleya Chardonnay reflects the typicity and exceptional quality of white wines we can produce in Sonoma County from this finicky variety."
"Peach apricot and a host of yellow stone fruits flesh out in the 2012 Chardonnay Pratt Vineyard. Hints of spice and tropical fruit add volume on the caressing resonant finish. The Wente clone on this site gives plenty of fruit but fewer of the nuttier more oxidative notes that are typical of Wente clone Chardonnays."v
