Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Our Chardonnay is a shimmering straw-gold color with a verdant rim. It has very intense, dense and alluring aromas of Bosc Pear, Meyer lemon, Apricot jam, and caramel. It has flavors of rambutan, vanilla bean, passionfruit and spice. On the palate it is notably vivid, bursting with juicy intensity and displaying a viscous impression and long finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) Our ELIAS Chardonnay has aromasof pear, apricot toast and lemon meringue emerge slowly after an initial burstof Chablis like minerality. In the mouth it balances a lanolin like richnesswith crisp apple and has flavors of panna cotta and pear. Nuanced at first, welingered over this wine for 10 minutes as it relaxed in the glass to reveallayer after layer of personality. Vegan Friendly.
