Our Chardonnay is rich with delicate aromas of jasmine, orange blossom, citrus fruit, and dried pineapple with hints of honey bread. The midpalate is vibrant with flavors of ripe peach, hazelnut, Asian pear, and lemon tart. The minerality and acidity offer complexity to the refreshing finish.
This was an excellent vintage that grew a bountiful crop with great structure. The March miracle left the soil with plenty of moisture to support the plants through the end of May. The long, warm summer saw very few extreme heat events, allowing fruit to set the stage for vibrant and expressive flavors. The long, relatively mild finish to the season helped preserve the freshness and finesse with abundant hang time providing great color and soft tannins.
