- 94+ Punkte, View from the Cellar, John Gilman: „These chardonnay vines were planted in 1973 on their own rootstocks, on a steep, southwest-facing slope that sits on a combination of sandstone and shale, one thousand feet above the San Lorenzo Valley. The cuttings were from old Wente clones back in 1973, and today the vineyard gets plenty of morning and late day fog to moderate its temperatures during the growing season. The wine is barrel-fermented in older casks with indigenous yeasts, aged in these barrels for a year and the racked to stainless steel tanks for six months of finishing elevage. The 2019 version comes in at 12.7 percent octane and delivers a beautifully refined bouquet of pear, lemon, elder flowers, a complex base of minerality, citrus zest and a whisper of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is vibrant, full-bodied and impeccably balanced, with a lovely core and soil signature, zesty acids and excellent focus and grip on the long, pure and complex finish. This is more accessible out of the blocks than previous chardonnays that Joanna and Sean have released from the Wood Valley Vineyard, which could prove to make holding onto this beautiful wine in the cellar quite difficult! Like all of the Model Farm wines, it is built to age and will be infinitely more enjoyable to drink if given some bottle age, but good luck exercising the self-control needed! ” 2021-2040

- 93 Punkte, VINOUS, Antonio Galloni: „The 2019 Chardonnay P-M Staiger Vineyard is a gorgeous, expressive wine fram a site in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Crushed rock, slate, sage, mint, chamomile, lemon peel and a touch of reduction infuse the 2019 with layers of depth. The 2019 is vivid an beautifully layered from start to finish.“

Notizen des Weinguts: The 2019 P·M Staiger Chardonnay comes from a historic site located deep in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The vineyard was planted in 1973, own-rooted, to a selection of the old Wente clone. To say it is rare to find an own-rooted Chardonnay vineyard in California is an understatement! The vineyard sits on a steep south-west slope at over 1,000 feet elevation, high above the San Lorenzo Valley. The elevation allows for ample sunlight while the cold Pacific air moderates the overall temperatures. As with our favorite sites, the vineyard gets plenty of fog at the start and end of each day. The soils are a thin mix of sandstone and shale, promoting full flavor ripeness at low sugar and high acidity. CELLAR NOTES: We find such joy in the simplicity of making white wine. For us, it is purely the product of careful pick decisions, skillful choices at the press, and a lot of patience. Beginning in the vineyard, we are constantly tasting and waiting for acidity and flavor to reach their point of optimal balance. Our Chardonnay is then gently whole-cluster pressed as we watch over the ever-changing flavors, textures, and chemistry that transpires during the pressing cycle. We separate the juice into distinct lots and leave them to settle overnight. The next day, we fill lightly used barrels, by gravity, with the settled juice. Each barrel remains tucked away in the cellar, undisturbed, to begin fermenting at its own pace. There is no inoculating, no stirring, no additions – just time. We monitor each barrel’s unique fermentation over the course of 12 months. Once the wines are ready, they are moved into stainless steel for an additional 6 months of aging. The added aging provides the wine with additional focus and length.
