Winemaker's Notes

Cold Creek Chardonnay is typified by concentration and intensity from the 30-year-old vines and warmth of the site. This Chardonnay exhibits aromas of apple and lemon with toast flavors on the finish. The Cold Creek Chardonnay is our biggest Chardonnay with weight and body, but the 2007 also shows great balance and a restrained finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Cold Creek Vineyard Chardonnay was sourced from a site planted in 1973. Over half the blend was fermented with natural yeasts in 55% new French oak and aged sur lie for 9 months. Light gold-colored, it offers up notes of toasty oak, baked apple, and butterscotch. Riper, rounder, and fuller in body than its two siblings, it has outstanding depth, concentration, and length. It may well evolve for 1-2 years and drink well through 2015. "
