Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2015 vintage has fresh flavors and aromas of lemon grass and white peach, alongside subtle notes of coconut and vanilla. Eight months of sur lees aging along with 35% malolactic fermentation, enhances this Chardonnay’s rich complexity and develops an elegant, creamy mouth-feel.
Vineyard Notes
2015 was one of the earliest harvests in recent memory for the Carneros growing region. An unseasonably warm winter was followed by warm temperatures in the spring, resulting in an early bud break. Although the yield was light, grape quality was outstanding, with compact berry sizes contributing to great fruit concentration. Our winemaking team is proud to present a Carneros Chardonnay with bright flavors and balanced acidity, expressive of this stellar wine growing region. Carneros is our newest family-owned vineyard. e appellation received its ocial AVA (American Viticultural Area) in 1983 because of its unique terroir. With temperatures somewhat more moderate than growing regions to the north, marine influences and soil types make it ideal for the cultivation of the cool-loving Chardonnay grape.
Food Pairing Notes
Versatile and food-friendly, this wine pairs wonderfully with light entrèes such as chicken piccata or a grilled Swordsh with beurre blanc sauce. It is also a great accompaniment to creamy, surface-ripened cheeses like Brie and Camembert.
