(From 2012 Vintage) Fresh fruit flavors of citrus and stone fruits in the wine. Partial barrel fermentation, malolactic and lees stirring create layers, imparting hints of cedar and honey and wrapping the flavors in a rich, generously-textured mouthfeel.
(From 2013 Vintage) Lemon blossoms, green apple, ripe pineapple and honeydew melon are front and center in this Chardonnay. This crisp fruitiness is combined with nuances of vanilla topped cream brulee, butter, and toasted oak making this wine both easy to enjoy and seductively complex. Silky supple with lingering flavors, yet a tingle of crisp acid on the finish; a great accompaniment for food and friends.
