Winemaker's Notes

Edna Valley Chardonnay is first and foremost about the place. As with the best Chardonnays, this one saw winemaking treatments such as barrel fermentation, malolactic fermentation, lees stirring and use of new oak barrels. My goal as winemaker is to balance these things with the uniqueness that comes from this place, uniqueness that comes from growing Chardonnay in Edna Valley. Smoky aromas ofvanillia oak and sweet spice balance lush white peach and citrus aromas.The white peach and citrus notes and the subtle minerality of the finish are to be respected and even shown off, enhanced by fullness on the palate and length of finish.

With a crisp acidity, full mouth and a long finish, our 2003 Chardonnay is the perfect companion to a broad range of foods, from the everyday to the special occasion. It complements roasted chicken, sautéed fish, seafood and pasta with white sauce, plus a whole range of creamy and delicate foods.
