    Winemaker's Notes:

    This elegantly balanced Chardonnay shows robust acidity and purity of fruit with subdued tropical fruit, orange blossom and Asian pear flavors and subtle mineral nuances that gain complexity on a long, robust finish.

    The fruit was lightly whole-cluster pressed to tank and allowed to settle. The juice was then racked off of the solids into mostly second and third year French oak barrels where it was aged sur lie and stirred for six months resulting in a rich mouth feel and a creamy full finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Round and lively, with pretty pear and cream flavors that dance with floral and orange peel notes on the silky finish. Drink now. 4,925 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    A fine, easy-drinking, high acid style of Chardonnay, this shows spiced apple and white peach flavors, quaffable and tart. It will taste best with some sort of creamy sauced poultry or seafood.

    Wine Enthusiast

    Pale greenish-yellow. Citrus fruits, spices and flowers along with a hint of tropical fruits. Sweet and ripe, with a banana note juxtaposed with a cooler mineral element. Finishes broad but slightly phenolic.
