Peter Martin Ray sits 1800 feet above the small town of Saratoga. This site dates to the late 1800’s being one of the first Chardonnay vineyards to be planted in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Being perched high above the valley floors, the grapes see more sunshine than our other sites, resulting in thicker skins which bring a savory masculine note to the wine that reminds us of the great Burgundies from Puligny. Dry-farmed, extremely exposed and some of the rockiest soils we work with give this wine character not to be found in our other Chardonnays. Old vines dating back to 1971 have never been irrigated, requiring the roots to search deep into the steep hillside for water and nutrients.
