This wine opens with fresh tropical fruit aromas of peach and pineapple, with hints of lime giving way to a slight toasty character. Outstanding balance shines upon entry, with good viscosity and acid providing a round mouthfeel, bolstered by bright

Better known for Cabernet, Pine Ridge has been doing an interesting job with Chardonnay. Every vintage is different, but usually worth a peek. The '05, from a cool year, is high in acidity, which gives the long hangtime peach, apricot and nectarine fruit a tart, jam-like boost. - S.H. Intense and concentrated, with a strong leesy pineapple flavor thats crisp and vibrant. Drink now. 15,300 cases made. -JL ** Only 5 in Stock **

Winemaker's Notes:

Concentrated tropical fruit aromas of peach and citrus are well-defined and dominate the nose, with layered flavors of toast and marshmallow cream on the palate. The 2006 Epitome Chardonnay boasts a structure that is round and firm, showcasing its bright acidity and an extended finish marked by hints of butterscotch and toast, along with lingering peach and citrus flavors. The richness, mouthfeel and balanced fruit integration are due to extensive sur lie aging. Enjoy now or cellar for 5 to 10 years.
