Delivers aromas of lemon, zested orange peel and a hint of toasted marshmallow from the oak influence. Balanced and full with concentrated flavors of lemon oil are followed by rich and creamy minerality. 

Ratings

91 Points Robert Parker - The 2017 Chardonnay Estate opens with notes of toast, cream, lemon pith and hay over a core of Red Delicious apple and banana chips. The medium-bodied palate is rounded and creamy with toasty spice and honey notions, finishing long and lifted with juicy acidity.
