Winemaker's Notes:

Leesy citrus, grapefruit and honeydew melon flavors are full-bodied, intense and concentrated, with a pleasant earthy edge that builds depth and complexity on the finish. This wine expresses a nose of creamy, toasty oak which leads to a palate of tropical fruit, Meyer lemon, and spice. The fruit is sourced from several prestigious Napa and Sonoma vineyards, and the wine, which is 100% Chardonnay, underwent complete malolactic fermentation before aging in 90% new Francois Freres French oak barrels for 11 months.

About Pahlmeyer:

Jayson Pahlmeyer has been producing highly sought-after wines since 1986. It began with Jayson's dream to make world-class Bordeaux-style wine from Napa Valley. Pahlmeyer's estate vineyard - Waters Rance - is situated at 2100 feet in the Atlas Peak appellation of Napa Valley. It is the key source for their Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Chardonnay. Jayson's passion eventually led him to the Sonoma Coast, where less than seven miles and two ridges from the Pacific Ocean, he planted Wayfarer Farm, their key source for Pinot Noir.
