Winemaker's Notes:

Barrel fermentation, sur lie aging and malolactic fermentation have produced a Chardonnay with layers of complexity and depth. Upon raising a glass of this 1998 vintage, aromas of pears, apples, and a touch of butterscotch flood the senses. Generous and thick on the palate, this Chardonnay gives a lingering finish of tropical fruit framed in spicy oak.

About Bogle Vineyards:

Although the Bogle family has been farming since the 1800's, it wasn't until 1968 that the father and son team of Warren and Chris Bogle planted their first 20 acres of wine grapes in Clarksburg, California. Clarksburg is a small farming community nestled in the Sacramento Delta. Today Bogle Vineyards farms over 1,000 acres of wine grapes in the Delta region. While the winery was established ten years after the first grapes were planted, it has grown tremendously along with the vineyards. Bogle Winery is currently producing 100,000 cases of wine. Winemaker Christopher Smith joined the winery in 1992. He sources fruit from some of the best vineyards throughout the State of California and blends that fruit with the best grapes from our Estate Vineyards in Clarksburg.
