The 2012 Estate Chardonnay is one of our most lively offerings of Chardonnay to date. It expresses the best of classic Carneros Chardonnay with fruit flavors at the peak of ripeness and plenty of vibrant acidity. Spicy ginger and cream soda aromas burst from the glass while notes of ripe pear invite the taster. The wine is fresh and vibrant on the palate with flavors of granny smith apples spiced with ginger and lemon zest. The finish ends with a kiss of oak.
