    Winemaker's Notes:

    Capturing the distinctive characteristics of our unique terroir, our Estate Chardonnay holds fragrant aromas of ripe pear, green apple, hazelnut, vanilla and baking spice. Bright fruit flavors glide across a lithe and supple midpalate, balanced by toasty oak and a creamy texture. The vineyard's limestone soils leave a distinct footprint with a crunchy rock minerality that persists through the middle and holds the finish. The fine balance of vibrant acids with weightier oak influences makes an excellent match to rich, creamy foods such as soft cheeses and chicken dishes with heavier sauces.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Great price for a Chardonnay of this quality. It's dry and crisp, yet very rich in fruit, showing tiers of pineapples, tangerines, nectarines and peaches, girded with a fine minerality. Distinguished and elegant, it will hold over the next 3–4 years.
