Mayacamas Chardonnay shows banana, lychee, and lemon on the nose in the bouquet. On the palate, you get white Figs, white peach, pear, and crisp apple. The very subtle French Oak treatment is in the background, and the acidity is bright.
The 2010 Chardonnay is composed of 100% Chardonnay grapes. The thin, rocky volcanic soil at Mayacamas produces small, intensely flavored grapes. Mild summers and wet, cold winters magnify these characteristics. The vines are also "dry farmed" (unirrigated) which produces great richness of varietal flavor.
