About This Wine
Floral aromas accent flavors of golden apple, pear, white peach and lively citrus. Rich and full-bodied, yet elegant and finely structured, the 2017 vintage boasts a long, refreshing finish with fresh apple and mineral tones. Delicious now, this classic single-vineyard, cool-climate Carneros chardonnay will develop beautifully in bottle for another 3-5 years.
This year we tried something new—using puncheons for 4% of the wine, which is actually an older technique used prior to the 1970’s.
