Winemaker's Notes

A perfect expression of Monterey Chardonnay. Aromas are expressive of ripe tropical fruits with notes of crème brulee. The palette is rich with flavors of apple, pear and exotic fruits which linger on the long, creamy finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh aromas of Meyer lemon and delicate vanilla. Zesty lemon, peach and apricot flavors with crisp acidity and a hint of toasted oak. An enjoyable Chard that is perfectly matched to shellfish."
91 Points

"Rich and layered, with a complex range of fig, citrus, green apple and hints of tropical fruit folding together. Gains depth, ending with a long, fruit-driven finish. Drink now through 2011."
