Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Chardonnay is a bright straw with green tinges. The aroma has a vibrant almost pungent perfume with great complexity. Fruit forward with nuances of orange peel, apple pie with cloves, peach jam and cinnamon like spicy French oak and subtle hints of almond meal. The palate is firm with fresh acid upfront and a central supple core of rich Chardonnay fruit. The mouth feel is full and intense with spicy apple and custard flavors. The finish is warm with light oak tannins finishing the wine dry with the perfumed fruit yeast and oak complexities lingering.
