The hue of this wine is brilliantly clear, golden straw—a color that dramatically sets the stage for what is to come. The nose is similarly demonstrative, with expressive notes of tangerine, white peach, green apple, Meyer lemon, and orange blossom laced with hints of butter, cream, vanilla, and flint. It all comes together on the palate with zesty, fresh flavors of tangerine, lemon curd, stone fruit, white peach, and nectarine framed by vanilla followed with wet-stone minerality and orange peel on the finish. 100% Chardonnay
The 2017 vintage was characterized by a moderate to low crop level that arrived early, but displayed exceptional quality. A mild, wet winter led to an early bud break. A mild spring followed with very little rain, resulting in small grape clusters. The fruit flavors in the white varietals were highly concentrated.
