Winemaker Notes

I choose a select variety of chardonnay "clones" to enhance complexity, while keeping to the food friendly flavor profile that has always been a hallmark of Davis Bynum: a little lighter, without being lean; a little crisper, without being tart; a little more aromatic, without being distracting; and balanced with less oak and alcohol than you often find in California chardonnays.

Its combination of quality and price are exemplary and earn it an added measure of attention.
