2014 Betsy Ross

Chardonnay
Description

In honor of the iconic Betsy Ross – who, during the depths of the American Revolution, rallied a nation with the creation of the first American flag – this wine is crisp and refreshing, bringing together floral aromas and bright fruit flavors the way the newly created American flag brought together a nation. 

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 
The moment you sniff the enticing aromas of this mouth-watering blend of Chardonnay with a hint of  French Colombard, your tail is sure to wag. White floral aromas mingle with hints of peach and apricot, luring you in.

Flavors of tropical passion fruit, ripe apples and a touch of lemon zest mingle on the palate while the long, harmonious finish is sure to make you drool. 

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2014 vintage across California was one of the earliest harvested vintages in years. A warm spring lead to early bud break and created the perfect environment for flowering and fruit set. Moderate temperatures, with only minimal rain in September, allowed for even ripening and optimal fruit maturation.
