Winemaker's Notes

Our 2019 Chardonnay, Kite Tail is sourced from the bluff tops of our Los Carneros estate that experience the windiest days and thinnest soils. Crafted from the Old Wente clone, our Kite Tail offers a gorgeous combination of citrus, apricot and bright green apple notes with a hint of lemongrass and verbena. This wine has a bright combination of stone fruit kissed with lime zest, giving it a crisp structure and long, juicy finish.
