Our flagship and renowned Chardonnay which is the quintessential expression of our Sleepy Hollow Estate located in the Santa Lucia Highlands of California. Hand picked grapes, barrel aged 12 months in French Oak, 30% new oak. Excellent food wine as it is full bodied, smooth balance, with delicious notes of tangerine, grapefruit, white peach, and toasted almond.
"As always with this vineyard, the wine is superripe, almost overripe, with extracted pineapple, pear, nectarine and peach flavors that are impossibly ripe. New oak adds even richer vanilla, caramel and buttered toast notes. Great acidity and firm minerality fortunately balance all this flamboyance, but it's still a pretty powerful Chardonnay. Drink with rich lobster, scallop and tuna dishes. "
"Presents its tropical fruit flavors on a laser beam, with spicy citrus, green pineapple, guava and green apple scents. Intense, concentrated and very cleansing. Drink now through 2017. 7,728 cases made."
