Winemaker's Notes:

Flavors of ripe apples, apricot and peaches, with layers of tropical fruit in this Alamos Chardonnay. Additional flavors and aromas of brown spice and butterscotch from the oak aging round out this balanced Chardonnay.

About Alamos:

From the vineyard to the winery, the Alamos wines are made to emphasize varietal fruit character. The cool evening temperatures in Catena's high altitude vineyards allow for prolonged hang time, preserving the fruit's full spectrum of aromas and flavors.

At the winery, the grapes are gently destemmed, fermentation temperatures are carefully controlled and two to four year old barrels are used to age the wines.
