2009 was an excellent vintage that featured light spring rain, warm summer weather
and no abrupt climate changes at season's end. This allowed us to be highly selective
during harvest, choosing the very best fruit only when completely ripe. As a result, this

chicken, and pork tenderloin with peaches.
Here's a nice, bright Chardonnay that can be described as Chablisian. It's bone dry and very bright in tangy acidity, with a squirt of lime juice over meyer lemons, pineapples, and green apples. A touch of oak adds just the right note of buttered toast. Easy to find, with 73,000 cases produced.
