Winemaker's Notes

Inviting expansive aromas of honey, ripe nectarine and blossoms explode into a party of flavors; Fuji apple and Bosc pear wrap around a flinty framework, with peach, cantaloupe and vanilla infused with a brush of sweet oak. A full, flavorful and lively crisp finish rounds out this crowd-pleasing Chardonnay.

Critical Acclaim

"Josh Jensen makes this wine from a collection of vineyard sources in Monterey and Santa Clara counties. It’s bright and citrusy with fresh scents of Mandarin orange and lemon, a lusty undertow of smoke pulling back on all the fruit. Clean and vinous, this is a zesty white for pan-roasted sand dabs."
