Aromas of peach, pear and pineapple enhanced by a subtle toastiness define this wine’s wonderfully fragrant nose. On the palate, the wine is supple and long, with a crisp and satisfying finish. Enjoy with fried calamari, scallops in a light curry sauce, crab cakes, filet of sole with almonds, corn chowder, macaroni and cheese; or turkey panini.
The cool Carneros climate gives us Chardonnay with bright fruit flavors and natural acidity. All of the fruit is whole cluster pressed before cold barrel fermentation. We ferment and age the wine in American and French oak barrels for eight to nine months. The traditional practice of batonnage is used to build body, texture and to integrate flavors.
