Description

Our single vineyard and small lot releases enable us to deliver some of our finest expressions of chardonnay by concentrating on specific vineyards, clonal selections or techniques. The Parker West Vineyard is a dynamic site planted in sandy soils on a windswept hillside only a few miles from the cold Pacific Ocean. 

This chardonnay offers up generous notes of lemon cream, citrus, yellow peach, golden apple, toasty oak and vanilla all backed by bright, refreshing acidity.

 

Wine Critic Reviews
"...quite elegant in this vintage. It offers a beguiling mix of ocean salinity, citrus confit, mint, white pepper and a discreet touch of French oak. There's a striking combination of energy, power and translucence to explore for the next handful of years, or more." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "...offers a light gold hue to go with ripe orchard fruits, honeyed peach, toasted bread, and white flowers on the nose. I love its purity, it has medium-bodied richness, a rounded texture, and a good sense of freshness. Drink it over the coming couple of years." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
