Winemaker's Notes:

Medium straw in color, our Riverstone Chardonnay has luscious aromas of pear, tangerine and subtle lime with a bouquet of butterscotch, toasty oak and butter. The fully ripened fruit and malolactic fermentation provide a rich texture with honey, apple/pear and butter flavors balanced with toasted oak creating a generous, full flavored Chardonnay characteristic of its Monterey County heritage.
