2020 Reserve Chardonnay
A true golden California beauty, this classic Chardonnay was crafted with a mix of French, Hungarian, and American oak to provide layered complexity. Snappy notes of apple, orange blossom, and honey mingle in the aroma, while the palate swirls with flavors of vanilla cream, summer peaches, and butter croissants. Two different Chardonnay clones are used to create these exciting aromatics, complementing the rich mouthfeel and vibrant flavors of our estate grown fruit.
Barrel fermentation causes oak-imparted flavors like toast, vanilla, and s'mores to integrate into the profile of this Chardonnay. After fermentation, the wine spends an additional 17 months in barrel. We aged this vintage in a blend of 40% French, 34% Hungarian, and 26% American oak (40% new).
