Winemaker's Notes

Our 2021 Chardonnay was shaped by an exceptionally dry winter and cool spring, which encouraged a small but robustly concentrated vintage. Delightfully engaging acacia blossom aromatics greet the nose before layers of luscious white peach, apricot, shaved almond and a hint of marzipan unfold on the palate. Luscious stone fruit tones are enhanced by the wine’s full body and bright zest, culminating in a fine, lemony brioche finish.
