    Winemaker's Notes:

    "For those weary of oaky and buttery Chardonnay, here is a wine that delivers unmarked Chardonnay flavors and Santa Rita Hills character without over-the-top manipulation.

    The first scents out of the glass are a flash back to childhood - honey grahams! This character is derived from the fermentation and aging process, not from the grapes. With new oak impact at an all-time low, one can actually see through the layers and depict the fruit. The grapes contribute caramelized pear qualities and an element of wet stone. Sweet creamed corn, butterscotch and a trace of smoke fill in the layers.

    At first introduction, the wine displays bright, refreshing acidity. Flavors of sweet, perfectly ripe oranges and pineapple complement the slightly drying, but desirable character of minerals. This full-flavored wine maintains balance and levity with a bit of spritz. Flavors are long and lingering, with the essence of lemon drop candy providing a memorable send-off."
    - Winemaker Kirby Anderson
