Winemaker's Notes:

Bright, light staw color with crisp, golden highlights, this wine displays lime zest, nutmeg and quince on the nose with hints of lemon, clove and vanilla. It is lush and silky on the palate, with bright flavors of nectarine, acacia and tangerine fruit. The coolest vintage in 20 years brings out the minerality and tang in this vibrant, crisp Chardonnay. Nutty, spicy notes and rich stone fruit dominate this stylish wine.
