Nose

Exuberant aromas of Bosc pear, apple, floral notes and a subtle minerality

Palate

A beautiful choreography on the palate, leading to a finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is a classic chardonnay in its best sense – pure, pretty, and thoroughly charming.

Growing Conditions

The near-perfect 2012 vintage was a delightful experience. Our vines set a balanced crop which hung through a long, dry summer and ripened several weeks earlier than the previous year. The warmer vintage produced a Chardonnay with a full, rich body, while the earlier pick date allowed us to maintain a lively acidity in the finished wine.
