Wine Maker Notes
Our Estate Chardonnay blends the old vines of the Rued Clone and the most recently planted blocks of the Old Wente Clone. The combination of the Rued's floral, Muscaty aromas and bright acidity match perflectly with the Old Wente's generous texture. The 2009 Quail Hill Chardonnay features a greenish, pale yellow hue. Notes of quince, acacia, gardenia, orange peel and mandarine return to the palate by retro-olfaction. We recommend aging at least one year or decanting if it is to be consumed sooner.
