    Winemaker's Notes

    Our Vintage 2000 Estate Grown Chardonnay offers aromatics of citrus and green apple which are complemented by a very slight butterscotch aroma from the malo-lactic fermentation. The oak adds a subtle layer of creaminess. The wine is medium-bodied and well-balanced in the mouth, the flavors consistent with the aromatics. It finishes nicely with a good balance of acidity and rich texture.
