Winemaker's Notes

This wine provides masses of tropical fruit with Asian and Bosc pears, nectarine and jasmine on the nose, deftly balanced with toasty oak.

This wine was fermented with native yeasts and aged sur-lies for eight months in small French oak, of which 33% were new. Mitsuko's Vineyard Chardonnay continues the tradition of Clos Pegase's elegant, complex and fruit driven style.
