The upper end of from solid winery! This wine is NOT readily available, but for those wishing to experience an upper end Chard, this wine is akin to Rambauer; stone fruit, peach and late season stone fruit, deep sweet apple tones, with a very light hint of vanilla on the finish. Well structured from front to finish.

Rich and complex, our 2006 Reserve Chardonnay reveals lush aromas of ripe apple, pear, flowers, creme brulee and toasty oak. The beautifully balanced flavors first mirror the fruity aromas, and then pick up yellow peach, light honey and hazelnut notes mid-palate. You?ll find an intriguing clove note on the expansive, fruit-imbued finish. Pair our Reserve Chardonnay with rich and creamy first courses or entrees, like lobster bisque, smoked salmon crepes or pasta with four cheeses.At the winery, we gently pressed the grapes, allowed the juice to settle and then transferred the juice to small barrels for the primary fermentation. To round and soften the acidity, we allowed half of the wine to complete malolactic fermentation. We stirred the wine (batonnage) every three weeks to re-suspend the yeast lees and integrate flavors. More than a year of sur lie aging in oak barrels enhanced this wine?s creamy texture and long finish, while contributing hints of oak spice.
