Each year a small amount of Estate Chardonnay is produced. It is not widely distributed because of its limited quantity. With this vintage, however, once again we responded to the demand for "MORE ESTATE CHARDONNAY" and increased our production. This is our 'gift' to you: a very delicious wine that emphasizes the rich fruit of the chardonnay grape.
Although the Estate Chardonnay is barrel fermented, it emphasizes the wonderful fruit character of the grape rather than the oak. We discourage malo-lactic fermentation because we believe that our wine naturally exhibits great richness. Instead we stress the balance and length of the wine. The result is an absolutely delicious and food friendly wine. The 1999 vintage has wonderful tropical fruit aromas that are harmonized with light spicy oak undertones to create an absolutely delicious wine.
