Our 2007 Scott Family Estate Chardonnay is produced from Dijon clones grown on our Arroyo Seco Estate.
It is a wine with abundant aromas of apricot, pear, papaya, white peach and Meyer lemon zest with perfumed citrus blossoms, vanilla and toasty oak.
Aged for nine months on French oak - 45% malolatic fermentation - sur lees aging.
Winemaker's Notes: Arroyo Seco Chardonnay is reputed to be the most flavorful Chardonnay among the coolest growing regions of California.
With such outstanding grapes, we have combined the attributes of malolactic fermentation and sur-lees aging to yield a Chardonnay with aromatic elegance, opulent flavors and an exceedingly long, balanced finish.
"Brilliant yellow-gold hue. Apple, peach and pineapple flavors with a light floral accent. Ripe, tasty apple and pear fruit with an attractive, supple texture. Sweet, lengthy finish with a caramel apple-like richness." 92 Points
