Wine Maker Notes
This chardonnay shows an intriguing array of aromas from vanilla bean and toasted hazelnuts, to lemon Verbena. Crisp flavors of green apple and biscotti contrast with hints of grapefruit, toasted marshmallow, and freshlime on the finish. A bit of aging on American Oak, adds depth and complexity furthering this wine’s broad stylistic appeal.
