Selectiv Harvest Chardonnay

This picture was taken moments ago in the Carneros region of the Napa Valley. Some wineries are embracing high quality mechanization of  harvest, approaches that respect the quality of the process and the fruit. 

Often Dry Ice and KMBS are used to further protect the harvest.  When the conditions are correct, results in Chardonnay can be excellent.   See photo from tonight's pick.
