Winemaker's Notes

A hallmark of our Chardonnay, this wine has a vibrant blonde color and a nose presenting citrus and floral character. Hints of fresh tangerine and lemon are subtlety enhanced by French oak influence. The careful selection and gentle handling of our Chardonnay fruit results in a finished wine boasting intense fruit flavor and balanced acids.

    "Crisp acidity, lemon zest, white peach, and pear-like aromas and flavors characterize the 2004 Chardonnay. Although not terribly distinctive, it is a medium-bodied, pleasant white to enjoy over the next 2-3 years."
