100% Chardonnay. Pale gold with green hints, this Chardonnay offers fragrant notes of white peach, nectarines, and citrus zest with underlying nuances of roasted nuts and struck flint. The palate is refined, showcasing layers of fresh stone fruit, Meyer lemon zest, and a fine creamy texture with mineral-driven acidity leading to a refreshing, long finish. The wet winter and spring provided a healthy start, while mild temperatures during ripening led to wines of elegance and high natural acidity. Grapes were hand-picked, cold-room chilled, then fermented in a mix of new and older French oak barriques using indigenous yeasts. Barrels were stirred for texture and complexity, followed by careful barrel selection and three more months of aging before bottling. ABV 13.5%
