(From 2013 Vintage) The Canoe Ridge Estate Chardonnay is refined and elegant and offers apple and citrus aromas with a clean, refreshing finish. We age the wine in lighter French oak barrels to maintain the fresh, elegant style of this Chardonnay.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesElements of green apples and creamy oak combine comfortably in both the medium-density aromas and clean, compact flavors of this youthfully firm middleweight. It is not so tight that it cannot be enjoyed now, but it is a wine with a clear capacity for age, and another year or two of smoothing will work to its benefit.
