Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

The 2018 Marin County Chardonnay opens with a bouquet of meyer lemon, stone fruit, and honey suckle. 

Palate: 

On the palate this wine is bursting with flavors of pineapple, peach, and citrus. This wine is perfectly balanced with bright acid and rich mouthfeel and a long lingering finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2018 vintage was a near picture-perfect growing season that began in late February followed by a mild Spring yielding uniform grape clusters. Temperatures remained moderate to cool throughout the season with 2018 being considered one of the coolest vintages of the past decade. The cooler temperatures allowed for a longer hangtime, resulting in an even and temperate harvest maintaining ideal acid levels and balanced concentrated fruit flavors.
