Chardonnay

California 2013 Not your mother-in-law’s Chardonnay

Description

Our 2013 Chardonnay hails from vineyards along the California coast, where cool sea breezes bring out the apple, pear and tropical fruit character of Chardonnay grapes. And just when you think you’re good to go with all these bright fruit flavors, streaks of lemon crème, vanilla and toasty oak show up for added intrigue. Not to mention dimension and balance. This may not be your mother-in-law’s Chardonnay, but we’re betting she’ll like it as much as you do.

Winemaker's Notes

The California Chardonnay is made in what I call a "cocktail" style of Chardonnay. The stainless-steel fermentation keeps the fruit bright at the forefront and the small amount of barrel fermentation gives the wine just enough texture to add some richness. When I started making this style of Chardonnay 13 years ago I was simply making a wine to be the perfect after-work cocktail. Look for flavors and aromas of peach, spiced pear, red apples, and just a bit of pineapple.
