Valley of the Moon Unoaked Chardonnay 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Citrus blossoms and newly ripened nectarine highlight the delicate aromas of this fresh and vibrant wine. Nuances of honey, apple and banana add to its complexity. On the palate, bright tropical citrus and grapefruit flavors are balanced with the roundness of ripe pear. Mineral notes come to fore on the crisp, yet long and balanced finish.

Valley of the Moon Winery has been in operation longer than any other winery in the Glen Ellen area. As one of California s first wineries, the Madrone Vineyards at Valley of the Moon carries forward an illustrious tradition in winemaking since 1863.



Citrus blossoms and newly ripened nectarine highlight the delicate aromas of this fresh and vibrant wine. Nuances of honey, apple and banana add to its complexity. On the palate, bright tropical citrus and grapefruit flavors are balanced with the roundness of ripe pear. Mineral notes come to fore on the crisp, yet long and balanced finish.
