Global / California
These Chardonnay grapes were discovered in several cool climate growing regions in California. Each area has been able to lend unique flavor components and structure to the final blend. Grapes were harvested during the cooler night and morning hours to preserve the fruit’s delicate flavors. After a gentle pressing, the must was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with Burgundian yeasts. A small portion of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation adding a creamy note and softening the mouthfeel.

The 2018 harvest saw a long growing season with moderate temperatures in the spring and summer. Due to the consistent growing conditions and cool temperatures, the grapes matured slowly yeilding exceptional quality.
Elegant and well-balanced, our Chardonnay offers aromas of ripe pineapple, golden apple, Anjou pear and guava with hints of vanilla and baking spice. These lovely characteristics flow through to the palate leading to a crisp and refreshing finish.
Enjoy this lovely wine with cooked shellfish, creamy risotto or a bed of spring vegetables.
