    Winemaker's Notes:

    The spectacular 2010 vintage in the Chalone appellation gave this Chardonnay its highly nuanced flavors and exceptional structure. The cool temperatures allowed us to patiently wait for wonderfully ripe flavors, revealed in the wine as layers of peach, pear and citrus, while the pronounced minerality and silky texture come from our unique terroir. As always, right after bottling, I found fresh, lemony notes predominating in the aromas, but it is now starting to develop the complex brioche nuances that I love in this wine as it ages.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A young and racy white, offering intense, pithy citrus and green apple notes, which turn firm and tight on the finish. Needs time. Best from 2013 through 2020.
