Awards: 90 Points Tasting Panel
This 100% Chardonnay was sourced primarily from Lake County, with some fruit from Lodi/Clarksburg. The pleasant, delicate scents of lemon and lime are heightened with white floral tones. The palate has a creamy base, with a shock of acidity that lifts the crispness level and opens up to Yellow Delicious apple and Asian pear notes. The keen minerality follows through on the finish.
Aromas of luscious apple and sweet, ripe peach lead to crisp apple and stone fruit flavor on the palate balanced by the perfect amount of acidity on the finish. The rich, red volcanic soils of Lake County provide ripe Chardonnay fruit flavors and body year after year. Fruit from the mineral rich soils of Clarksburg provide added complexity to our blend.
