2015 Guenoc Chardonnay, Guenoc Valley, Lake County AVA
The 2015 growing season was early, light and of exceptional quality. Mild temperatures gave way to warmer summer days and cool nights that garnered wines of complex tannin structure and bright acidity. This 2015 Lake County Chardonnay is a beautiful golden hue with aromas of crisp apple, ripe peach and vanilla. The palate is full and round with flavors of pear, oak and crème brulee accented by butter and a touch of sweetness on the finish.
