(From 2013 Vintage) The 2013 vintage was nothing short of amazing, giving this Chardonnay its lusciously ripe fruit expression of white peach, ripe pear, Golden Delicious apple, mango and papaya. On the silky palate, nuances of citrus blossoms and minerals meld with vanilla-spice notes from oak aging. We used barrel fermentation, partial malolactic fermentation and aging the wine on the yeast to enhance its opulent, mouth-coating texture, while naturally crisp acidity balances the wine with vibrancy. Chill and pour it just to sip with friends or to pair with favorite entrées.
Wine Tasting Notes This wine offers aromas of apple, mango, fig and guava. The medium to full-bodied palate maintains impressive balance and flavor concentration, so it will hold its own with rich foods. The flavors of tropical and ripe stone fruits complement its acidity, and the finish is rich and long. You will love this bright and crisp Chardonnay that is perfect for summer afternoons spent with friends out on the patio. Enjoy it with seafood salads, tarragon chicken and coconut shrimp.
