The winemaker pulled out all the bells and whistles, barrel fermenting this Chardonnay, putting it through partial malolactic fermentation, and aging it on the lees. The result is a rich, creamy wine, ripe in pineapple, orange, pear, vanilla and honeysuckle flavors, and brightened with brisk Carneros acidity. Shows impeccable balance, at a fair price 91 Points Wine Enthusiast
A superb white wine, and at this price, buy it by the case. Made from Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Gewьrztraminer, it’s streamlined and dry, with racy acidity framing citrus, lychee, pear, honeysuckle, mineral and spice flavors. Production was 10,000 cases, and the alcohol is a low 12.5%.
