|Much like the 2010 growing season, 2012 began cold and rainy.
Monterey County had spring showers and low temperatures which pushed the growing season back almost two weeks. As spring and summer progressed, temperatures stayed fairly moderate and steadily ripened our Chardonnay grapes.
The 2012 Liberty School Chardonnay has a luminous pale golden color. The wine opens with aromas of green apple and lemon zest
complemented by tropical notes of pineapple, coconut and mango.
The wine’s vivacious acidity makes an impact upon entry,while its
creamy texture and rich flavors of green apple,blood orange,guava
and toasted almonds fill the palate. The finish is clean and crisp.
96% Chardonnay, 2% Marsanne, 2% Viognier
