Tasting Notes

Brilliant yellow in color, this wine is full of juicy
pineapple, candied ginger and fresh basil on the nose. The tropical fruit and
notes of poached pear continue on the palate, creating an unctuous texture and
ripeness to this Chardonnay. This is a wine to enjoy with or without food
thanks to its fresh fruit character and lusciousness.

Notes from Winemaker

This vineyard is a Region 1 cool-climate zone, offering the
grapes extended hang time, while maintaining nice acidity.  The fruit was picked early in the morning and
was then pressed and put into French oak barrels (40% new) to ferment. After 12
months, the wine was racked and lightly fined and put back in barrel before
being bottled unfiltered in December.
