The 2012 Chardonnay is a non-malolactic, old style California Chardonnay that sees little new oak (about 15% new French is utilized). Lots of pear, lemon oil and citrus notes emerge from this crisp, medium-bodied, fresh, lively Chardonnay. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years.”,,,

This oaky, fruity Chardonnay is lush and opulent. It has flavors of buttered toast, sweet cream, pineapples, tangerines, tropical-fruit jam, sauteed bananas and limes, accented with brisk acidity.

Wine maker notes
Refreshing lemon, lemon-lime and green apple fruit aromas with flavors predominantly citrus, floral and white peach with well integrated oak complexities. Inviting and refreshing.

Technical notes
Typically one third is barrel fermented while the balance is fermented cold in stainless steel tanks and is transferred to barrels after the fermentation. This non- malolactic chardonnay is aged for 6-8 months in French oak barrels.
