Wine Details





Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) An exotic aroma is followed by a rainbow of stone and tropical fruits, it’s bright and crisp, and the finish is long.

Winemaker's Notes

To achieve the balance of fresh fruit expression, texture and complexity, Tom barrel fermented 75 percent of the Chardonnay juice and cold fermented 25 percent in tanks. Partial malolactic fermentation rounded the acidity and added hints of crème brûlée to the lingering finish. The wine was stirred (bâtonnage) during six months of sur lie aging to integrate flavors and enhance silkiness.
