    Winemaker's Notes:

    A constant presence in the vineyard, Winemaker Kevin Morrisey walks the vine rows every morning as harvest approaches, seeking out blocks with intense flavors, optimum acidity, and perfect sweetness. The fruit is hand picked and rushed to the winery where it is whole cluster pressed.

    In order to preserve the minerality, fresh acidity and clean fruit characteristics, Kevin did not put the wine through malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged on the lees in 100 percent French oak (30 percent new) for eight months and was stirred every two weeks during maturation.

    Luscious aromas of white peach, tropical fruits, spice and honeysuckle greet the nose as this balanced Chardonnay presents flavors of lemon, pineapple and green apple on the palate, and a creamy mouthfeel from aging on the lees. Pleasing floral and spice notes from the French oak carry rich fruit flavors through for a juicy, long finish.
