The 2011 UV-SL Chardonnay exhibits dried fruit such as lemon, pineapple and even dried tree fruits in the aromas. Strong minerality and acidity frames the body with a vin du garde-like personality. Initially, there is a floral, high-toned elevation to candied fruits with heaps of wet stones.

"The 2011 Chardonnay UV-SL Vineyard emerges from a site on the Sonoma Coast seven miles from the ocean, just above Occidental.
