Light greenish straw in color, our chardonnay expresses fruit aroma of ripe pineapple, ripe banana, guava, apricot, peach and tropical fruit cocktail. Adding to the complexity, the oak aging is fairly integrated adding spice like nutmeg, light toast, and the nuance of angel food cake. This wine has great viscosity, depth and an intriguing long finish. The flavors are lively on the palate with pear, citrus, lemonlime, green apple and fleshy peach. This wine shows great complexity, creaminess, and elegance to compliment many foods.

Production Notes

Abundant winter rains helped refresh the groundwater and our reservoirs after several years of drought. The vines responded with plenty of growth. The summer had a few heat spells where we did employ water and canopy management, to avoid any damage to the fruit. The harvest was warm, slightly early in general. Yield was a little bit below average. The fruit was harvested before the October fires.
