2019 Estate Chardonnay
With a beautiful golden hue, awakened with aromas of spring jasmine, crisp honeydew melon, and under ripe pear. A textured palate, layered with composed fruits, white rock, and waxy apricots. Framed with bright acidity that is balanced with peppery wild honey and dried flower notes, delicately layered like a chamomile tea.
A tribute and testament to the vineyard's natural setting as well as its meticulous farmed Chardonnay vines. This offering was whole-cluster pressed, barrel fermented on native yeasts, and aged in 100% French oak barrels for 11 months. This well-balanced Chardonnay went through 100% Malolactic fermentation.
