Smith Madrone Chardonnay 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Opulent aromas of toasty cedar, ripe pears and green apples promise a sophisticated wine. This smooth, rich and creamy mouth-feel delivers nuances of tropical fruit, lemon zest and honeysuckle on the palate. The gracefully integrated acidity, coupled with refined minerality, creates an alluring marriage of mountain-vineyard structure and finesse.After the challenges of the 2010 and 2011 vintages – they were unusually cool – 2012 came as a welcome relief. Spring and summer passed with nearly ideal growing conditions and, sure enough, when September came around the Chardonnay ripened right on time. Harvest began on September 4 th under balmy blue skies and continued that way right through the end of the month. It was a harvest made memorable by the fact that everything went just right." -Winery
