Winemaker's Notes

With 2016 being a warm vintage with crisp cool nights, the Chardonnay grapes came in with ripe fruit characteristics alongside a nice backbone of acidity in late-September to mid-October harvest dates.  The three components were fermented in stainless steel upright fermenters with PDM yeast on all lots. To retain the freshness in this Chardonnay, as is typical of our house style, we did not use any oak or send the wine though ML.

Tasting Notes

Bright aromatic notes of kiwi, apple, nectarine along with a touch of orange peel, this wine explodes on the palate with a great diversity of favors. Delicious ripe stone fruits, starfruit, and pear that lead to an elegant finish with hints of orange zest and a nice touch of mineral and bright acidity.
