Aromas of fresh melon combine with hints of hazelnut and citrus. This medium-bodied Sonoma County Chardonnay displays fresh flavors of butterscotch and pineapple, followed by crisp acidity and a rich, lingering finish. - The Winery

    Very rich oaky nose. Medium acidity opens up onto a lot of oak and vanilla and spice. Some fruits, but its quite an oak bomb overall. Fine.

    Fruit and pear aromas are offset on the palate by hints of oak and vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied, this Chardonnay has ripe fruit flavors, crisp high acid in the mouth, and a rich lingering finish.

    Most of the grapes in this blend were grown in our own vineyards; the rest we carefully selected from nearby vineyards in Dry Creek, Sonoma Valley, Alexander Valley, and Russian River appellations, choosing only fully ripened grapes. The fruit is whole-cluster pressed and then fermented in different lots, 50% in new oak barrels, with six months aging before blending. Barrels are stirred by hand during aging to achieve a rich, lush mouthfeel. This Chardonnay does undergo 100% malolactic fermentation. As you’ll taste, the barrel component adds a toasty complexity. Fruit and pear aromas are offset on the palate by hints of oak and vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied, this Chardonnay has ripe fruit flavors, crisp acid in the mouth and a rich, lingering finish.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    "Aromas of orange blossom and lychee combine with pear and hazelnut flavors. This is a bright and balanced Chardonnay with a smooth, silky texture. Most of the fruit for this elegant Chardonnay comes from Sonoma Valley, which is bordered by two mountain ranges: the Mayacamas Mountains to the east and Sonoma Mountains to the west. The region’s moderate climate and cool breezes prolong ripening and lengthen hang time, promoting natural balance in this wine." -Winery
