Winemaker's Notes

This pale straw Chardonnay has brilliant green hues. Its nose displays lemon, lime and subtle spice characters. On the palate, it offers white peach and pear characters that combine with a creamy/nutty mid palate and a cleansing lemon finish.

This Chardonnay is unoaked but gets 6 months of aging on its yeast lees (dead yeast cells), which gives it creaminess, and has had 50% go through malolactic fermentation, which gives it a softer taste. It is an excellent match for chicken or grilled seafood.
