Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Bright aromas of green apple and Asian pear spring from the glass with a hint of toasted almond. 

Palate: 

Citrus notes are complemented by mango and peach flavors with a swirl of caramel and brioche. This is a well-structured and delightful Chardonnay with a subtle creaminess on the finish. These very special wines are produced in quantities of 500 or fewer cases and are exclusively offered through our Boisset Collection Ambassadors.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

This 2020 Chardonnay is grown primarily in vineyards located in the Russian River Valley, whose cool nights provide the wine’s freshness the backbone of brisk acidity. This is supplemented with fruit from the warmer Alexander Valley, whose sunny days coax the grapes to higher levels of ripeness and flavor development while enriching the wine’s texture. This wine is carefully blended to combine the best of both worlds: the depth and complexity of barrel-fermented Chardonnay with the brightness and verve of Chardonnay fermented in stainless steel.
