The Kershaw Clonal Selection Chardonnay makes use of the lower-yielding Dijon clones, namely 76, 95 & 96 offering a restrained, mineral style focused on elegance with a white fruit character, some oatmeal, and complexity gained from first, second, and third use 228L French Oak barrel aging.

The Kershaw Clonal Selection Syrah makes use of local clones 9c and 22 giving subtlety and precision built on fine tannins that educe harmony, freshness and flavors of black fruit, iodine, medicinal notes and black pepper.
