Caramel nose with apple and a hint of strawberry. The taste...is hard for me to describe. I can taste the strawberry, just a hint of mineral. There is a nice crispness to the body of the wine and a slight hint of citrus too. This has got to be one of my favorite whites.


Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Native Yeast Chardonnay is all about mouthfeel. It is made from 38% Old Wente, 31% Stony Hill, and 31% Rued clones. The wine is remarkably sensual and mouthwatering, the result of using distinct native yeast strains from our Corral Vineyard. 2008 will be remembered for its erratic weather. It was hot, cold, mild, hot, cold, hot again, and so on, resulting overall in smaller berries. On the upside, the low crop allowed us to micromanage each block. The result: expressive wines that are practically racing out of the bottle.

Tasting Notes:

By nose; honeydew melon, banana, and yeast lees. By mouth; tropical fruit with a “creamy texture” and balanced acidity. Pair with anything cooked in butter, such as fried or scrambled eggs (hold the bacon), and butter poached fish.
