(From 2011 Vintage) The 2011 R Collection Chardonnay is a beautifully crisp Chardonnay primarily fermented in stainless steel tanks, providing a nice alternative to the heavier oaked Chardonnays. The wine opens with delicate notes of floral perfume and ripe tropical fruits. On the palate, honeysuckle and dried apricots mingle with the bright flavors of grapefruit and are accented with the fragrant essence of lemongrass. This medium-bodied Chardonnay is well balanced, with a kiss of oak rounding out the fresh acidity of the fruit, and unfolding into a smooth, long-lasting finish.
