Tasting Notes: This light to medium-bodied Chardonnay has an expressive bouquet escorted by substantial flavors. Aromas of honeysuckle and apple blossoms waft gently around as subtle apricot emanates from the glass. The cool climate of the Sonoma Coast contributes to this wine’s fresh crisp notes of pineapple, orange sherbet and a trace essence of almond. A kiss of oak rides a wave of body and length toward the finish, with persistent sweetness of pineapple alongside a streak of minerality. This wine is impressive as a food wine, and sublime as a splendiferous sipper.

Vinification: The grapes were harvested at night to protect their delicate flavors and to preserve freshness. The fruit was immediately pressed and spent no time on skins. This wine saw a hint of French oak (25% new; 25% 1 yr old) during fermentation, while the remainder was fermented in stainless steel, preserving the fruit and brightness. This wine did not undergo Malolactic Fermentation.
