Winemaker's Notes

Our 2015 Chardonnay is rife with scents of orange blossom, honeysuckle, lime peel and white peach. On the palate, the wine brims with dense stone fruit, citrus, apricot and a flavorful impression of essential oils. The texture is quite sinewy, with minerality and persistence on the finish.
