2020 Chardonnay, Kite Tail

New Release
Winemaker's Notes

Sourced from the bluff tops of our estate vineyard that experience the windiest days and thinnest soils, the 2020 Chardonnay, Kite Tail showcases a palate fresh with notes of crisp green apple, lemon zest and key lime pie. A rich, toasty nose gives way to luscious stone fruit and citrus tones, while the finish is long and succulent, expressing a distinctive minerality unique to its marine influence.
