Enticing aromas of Asian Pear and hazelnut with a touch of Meyer lemon.

Creamy flavors of Fuji apple with toasted oats and vanilla crème spread across the palate. Well balanced acidity and a long finish.

A blend of two Chardonnay clones contributes to the unique character of this wine: the Musqué clone yields fruit of delightful floral and sweet spice nuance, while the Wente clone imparts rich texture and multi-dimensional layers of fruit.
