Winemaker's Notes

Nutmeg and clove in the nose introduce a highly fragrant chardonnay of exceptional balance and depth. Its bright acidity supports fresh fruit flavors and elements of spice, cream, and subtle toasted oak. The structure is tight and the mouth feel is very rich. This wine shows great complexity, bright intensity, boundless depth and a lengthy finish. Its crisp fruit flavors will compliment a wide variety of foods including meats, seafood, fowl and pasta.

Alcohol: 13.8% by volume
