This wine captures the vibrant, complex and classic character of our estate-grown grapes. 

This Chardonnay exhibits beguiling aromas of vanilla, orange blossoms, crisp apples and toasted marshmallows with a bit of spice from the barrels. Rich and creamy on the palate with notes of zested lemon oil and pear.

Production Notes

In the vineyard, focused planting of the ideal clone on each vineyard block, managing yields for optimum ripeness and balance, and the work of a dedicated crew are among the keys to our success. Chardonnay is a winemaker’s grape, molded into its most interesting self by native yeast fermentation and aging in carefully chosen French oak barrels and frequent lees stirring. It is a labor-intensive wine, but the rewards are most certainly worth the hard work and attention.

Vineyard Notes

The 2018 growing season was one of the most consistent in recent memory. Mild spring weather led to prime fruit set and ideal growing conditions.
