Eleanora's Selection


Named for Count Haraszthy's wife, Eleanora's Selection Chardonnay is harvested from the windswept Hawk Hill vineyard and the late ripening Stubb's Vineyard.

Tasting Notes

Fresh and fragrant aromas of lemon and apple with a touch of sweet vanilla from the barrel leap out of the glass of our 2016 Eleanora's Selection Chardonnay.


A textured palate of Fuji apple, lemon creme and dried apricot are complemented with a hint of vanilla caramel and coriander. The wine has medium-plus body and spreading, rich mouthfeel with bright acidity. This beautifully balanced wine is a perfect pairing with grilled lobster or creamy polenta dishes.

Vintage Notes: 

After hand harvesting, the grapes were whole cluster pressed into French oak barrels, 30% new, aged on the lies for 17 months and then bottled unfiltered.
