"Fresh and inviting, with pretty grapefruit and apple flavors set on a lively frame, finishing with pizzazz."
Smooth and creamy with juicy fruit and bright, ripe fruit flavors; lush and balanced.
Clear, straw yellow in color, the 2014 Chardonnay opens up with peach, apricot and orange zest followed by aromas of pie crust/short bread and creme brulee. The bright stone fruit character(s) carry through on the palate with good weight and balanced acidity. Sur-lees aged with monthly stirring, this wine has a nice integrated yeast aroma and flavor that should allow for palate length and complexity to develop over the next 2-3 years in bottle.
