Nose

Bright aromas of pear, green apple, and tropical fruit are followed by notes of honeysuckle, and vanilla.

Palate

Displaying a crisp mouthfeel, this wine displays a nicely balanced acidity and culminates with a smooth finish that makes it the perfect pairing with a variety of dishes.

Growing Conditions

The 2013 vintage across California was one of the earliest harvested vintages in years. A warm spring lead to early bud break and created the perfect environment for flowering and fruit set. With warm days and cool nights, grape growers were able to maintain ideal acid levels with optimum, bright fruit flavors.

Winemaking

Our 2013 R Collection Chardonnay is an exquisitely balanced and crisp Chardonnay primarily fermented in stainless steel tanks, providing a nice alternative to the heavier oaked Chardonnays.

Food Pairing

Try it with grilled shellfish or spicy Thai cuisine.
