2017 Chardonnay

A beautiful light yellow, verging on gold. In the glass, the wine presents a full and complex aroma with distinct hints of honeysuckle, caramel, pear, pineapple, and vanilla. The mouthfeel is warm and generous, bright and smooth, displaying balanced acidity and just a hint of oak. A long finish encourages another taste. You’re going to love this wine!

 

2016 Chardonnay

This delicious Chardonnay exhibits a vibrant light straw color in the glass and presents a lovely, subtle aroma of the stone fruits of pear and peach with a hint of green apple and vanilla. This wine is supple while possessing great natural acidity, balanced and enhanced with modest French oak. The mouthfeel is crisp, yet juicy, with some minerality, and delivers a lingering and elegant finish.

 

2015 Chardonnay

Nicely perfumed with aromas of lemon curd, cut apple, nectarine, and buttery brioche. Highly satisfying on the palate with flavors of citrus, pear, ripe apple, spice and vanilla, and a zing of lemon-lime on the juicy, prolonged finish. Slightly creamy in texture and polished, combining the most desirable traits of Chardonnay.
