Chardonnay of the Month

Silverpoint is a precise and meticulous method of drawing that reached its peak during the Renaissance. Pre-dating the use of graphite, silverpoint was used by old masters such as Albrecht Durer, Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt. These and other Renaissance artists used silverpoint for underdrawings of their paintings and for separate studies on paper. Using silverpoint, tonal differences are built up very slowly. The characteristics of silverpoint include subtlety of tone, delicacy of line and a sensuous surface. The silverpoint drawing technique captures the essence of the wines we want to produce.  That said, the emphasis on this wine is elegance, flavor and perfection.
