Tasting Notes

2019 was another great vintage for our Chardonnay! Cooler September temperatures helped preserve the natural freshness in this fruit and provided near perfect growing conditions. The wine opens with lovely aromas of Asian pear and gala apple. It dances on the palate with mouthwatering minerality, delicious pear, citrus and stone fruit, along with a hint of crème brûlée and creamy lemon.

Drink 2020-2028.
