This wine just keeps getting better with each vintage as we are now really starting to understand the vineyards where we source its fruit. The wine is 100% stainless steel fermented with no malo-lactic fermentations. This technique has allowed us to capture the true aromas and flavors from each of these vineyard sites. The cool summer of 2010 allowed for extremely slow flavor development that resulted in aromas of Sun Crest peaches, Red Gravenstein apples, Fantasia nectarines and Muscat Canelli grapes. The flavors are quite similar, but with a refreshing blast of acidity that reminds you of tropical fruits. I really enjoy turning my friends and family onto this wine and most everyone really loves it, especially when enjoyed with food.
"An interesting, crisp and bone-dry Chardonnay that succeeds in offering plenty of complexity despite the absence of any oak influence. The flavors carry the load, with intense notes of apricots, Meyer lemons and guavas, and a wonderful minerality - like a lick of cold steel."
"Pale gold. Spicy pear and orange aromas show impressive clarity and vivacity. Concentrated but light on its feet, offering intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors that become sappier with air. Finishes tangy and very long, with resonating mineral and floral notes. "
