Aromas of pear, citrus and vanilla are followed by flavors of green apple, lime and clove spice. The rich and creamy texture is accented by hints of honey and toasty oak, and balanced with a bright finish of zesty citrus and nectarine

Winemaker Notes:The fruit for this wine comes from select vineyards within the Sonoma Coast region, including the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the southern Sonoma Valley. These cool-climate appellations are characterized by foggy mornings and cool breezes that keep the fruit at an optimum temperature: perfect conditions for growing premium Chardonnay grapes. The fruit for this wine was whole-cluster pressed and fermented in French oak barrels. The wine was allowed to age sur lies for six months with some of the wine undergoing malolactic fermentation. The individual lots were then selected for blending and bottling.


Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Rich texture with toasty vanilla aromas and fruit flavors of golden delicious apples and bartlett pears.
