Winemaker's Notes

Rich, ripe Gravenstein apple and apple pie aromas along with scents of fresh peaches, honeysuckle and a hint of spice fill the mouthwatering nose of this Chardonnay. Beautifully structured with satiny textures, the wine offers abundant ripe apple and Meyer lemon flavors, a deft touch of oak, great length and enticing minerality.

Critical Acclaim

"Flavors were subdued but complex, with notes of papaya, mango, coconut and lime. Full and lush in the mouth, it remained focused and balanced, with lively acidity that kept the wine fresh through the long finish."
