Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 exhibits a delicate perfume of white flower, lime and crushed rock. The bright acidity is balanced by juicy nectarine and papaya with the luscious mouthfeel of barrel–aged Chardonnay. The late palate shows citrus and spicy sandalwood culminating in a long finish of lemon peel and a persistent minerality. Both elegant and energetic, our North Coast Chardonnay is a harmonious blend of tank and barrel fermentations, decidedly coastal in structure.
