A strong success in a challenging vintage, the 2006 Chardonnay reveals notes of spicy oak interwoven with tropical fruits, citrus butter, and orange oil. Full-bodied, layered, fresh, and lively, it can be enjoyed over the next 1-2 years. ** Only 2 bottles in stock **

The 2006 vintage began with a rather late bud break during an unseasonably cool and wet spring. March rains slowed shoot growth down considerably, and set the timer for a late harvest. After a fine May and June, much of July was a scorcher, including a 10 day stretch where every day saw temperatures over 90 degrees, and several days topped out at 110! Fortunately, the delayed development of the grapes kept sun scorch to a minimum. Harvest began the second week of September, and continued all the way into mid October. This extended ripening period was accompanied by mild weather and promoted excellent flavor development, with the last of the chardonnay harvested on October 14th. Wine maker notes Barrel fermentation in new and seasoned French oak added toasty vanilla and spice complexities, and during 10 months of barrel ageing, we regularly stirred the lees in barrel, which gives a certain fullness and creamy texture on the palate. Encouraging malolactic fermentation added additional character, and in the glass the wine is both creamy and crisp, with abundant fruit character, mineral, and toasty oak flavors. Enjoy over the next 1-3 years. Technical notes 100% Chardonnay Fermentation/ Aging 98% barrel fermentation. 95% malolactic fermentation - 9 months in 52% new French barrels and 48% older French barrels.

A rich, round and well-oaked style of Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of tropical and stone fruits enhance the minerality that shines through from the soil on which it is grown.

Winemaker's Notes:

Its intensely honeyed aromas and flavors are of the divine - ripe pear, apricot and mango, creme caramel, vanilla bean and toasted almond.

Tasting Notes:

Aromas of white flowers, ginger, and white peach preceed a slight flintiness and fresh cream. The palate combines Asian pear, jasmine blossom, and a sur-lie creaminess with and earthy, wet-stone minerality.
