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.
