With great acidity, this lighter Chardonnay is perfect for the summer months. It is entwined with flavors of candied pear, stone fruits, and floral notes. The structure shimmers with a bright acidity and has a hint of innate minerality that preludes a long finish with essences of key lime, violets, and citrus blossom.
…it was a warm, dry winter and we didn't start to see rain and cold weather until the end of March. Summer brought very cool mornings and very warm days. This build-up to harvest was interrupted by two wildfires as we turned to the fall; The LNU Complex Fire started on August 17th and the Glass Fire started on September 27. The white wine harvest started in early August, are showing excellent development in cellars, reflecting the fine vintage year. While the red wine harvest will be smaller than usual, most wineries were able to move forward with red wine vinification.
