Aroma: Guava, pineapple, citrus, and vanilla
Flavors: Butterscotch, brioche, and baked apples
Nose: Lemon and cloves create even more allure right up to a long, vibrant finish imbued with caramel vanilla
Winemakers Notes: 2018 experienced a traditional season where plenty of spring rain was followed by warm temperatures in June. Unlike the early harvest of the previous year, there were fewer heat spikes, ripening the fruit more slowly, and developing good weight, fragrance, and yield. Once picked, our Chardonnay was whole-cluster pressed and fermented in small French oak barrels to achieve a rich, creamy mouthfeel with plentiful spice nuances.
