2017 Firestone Vineyard Reserve Chardonnay, Santa Ynez Valley
This wine opens with aromas of ripe Anjou pear, Red Delicious apple, and a touch of Meyer lemon. The rich palate and body of this Chardonnay is filled with toasted brioche, butterscotch and hints of baking spice balanced with a delightful acidity to create a soft, round creamy finish.

The fruit for our 2017 Reserve Chardonnay is sourced from our oldest Chardonnay block. The older the vineyard, the lower the yields, which results in a more concentrated fruit forward style.
