Tasting Notes

Aroma: 

Aromas of key lime and white peach with a hint of sweet honeysuckle.

Palate: 

Layered flavors of baked apple, Asian pear and vanilla creme are balanced with a touch of flinty brightness that leads to a long, clean finish.  This Chardonnay pairs well with a variety of light  dishes  and effortlessly combines the two distinct styles of crisp refinement and rich elegance.

Winemaking

Vintage Notes: 

The wine underwent l00% Malolactic fermentation and was aged for 9 months in 80% French oak barrels (20%  new), with the balance in stainless steel tanks. The result was a well-balanced wine with bright acidity and a rich, round mouthfeel.
