Winemaker's Notes

Cool weather gave us the latest harvest in the past 30 years for the 1998 fruit. However, the extremely long "hang time" resulted in wines, with complex aromas, intense flavors, and excellent acidity. Our chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented in French oak (33% new) and has undergone only a partial malolactic fermentation, which allows the wine to retain some of its natural acidity-- making this an ideal food wine. The 1998 has aromas of tropical fruit, green apple, citrus and pear; accented with vanilla, hazelnut and spice.
