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.
