"This clean, refreshing Chardonnay offers a core of green apple, pineapple, citrus and honeydew melon flavors that remain pure and persistent. Drink now through 2016. 6,600 cases made." (WS)

"This is too oaky, with vanilla, buttered toast and butterscotch notes dominating the underlying pineapple and guava flavors. — S.H.(11/1/2012) " (WE)

Winery Notes:
Long, cool fermentation in a mixture of old and new barrels gives our Chardonnay layers of fruitiness and complexity that result in a wine that is very enjoyable when young or after several years of bottle age. This method of fermentation, in conjunction with whole cluster pressing and "sur lie" aging add layers of toastiness and creaminess to the wine. Together these components meld together harmoniously to create a balanced wine that is both lively and rich in aroma and flavor.
