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. We have worked with fruit from this historically famous vineyard since 1990; the results have been fabulous!

This chardonnay is generous in texture but balanced by bright acidity. You will find aromas of pear, baked pineapple and graham cracker on the nose. The palate is expansive yet focused with forward tropical fruit flavors backed by attractive mineral and vanilla notes adding complexity. Enjoy!

Wine Critic Reviews
"Apple, citrus, pear and tropical notes are fresh and lively on a sleek frame. A touch of vanilla bean and salted caramel lingers on the finish, where everything is harmonious and intense." ~ Wine Spectator
