Aromas of creamy golden apple, peach, and baking spice lead into intense, concentrated flavors of sweet apple, melon and pear. Balanced acidity, freshness and evolving layers of complexity are the signatures of this remarkable, rich, bold Chardonnay Reserve.

Brought up in 35% new French oak, the 2017 Chardonnay Reserve offers a more rich, buttery style that carries plenty of apple-like fruits, white currants, and honeyed citrus aromas and flavors. It's nicely textured, has bright acidity, and a clean finish.

Barrel fermented, this robust white tastes of freshly cut pear, brioche and toasted oak, with a side note of baked apple. With a steely finish, it exudes richness through the midpalate, with hints of nutmeg and vanilla.

Juicy, with hints of red currant to the freshly cut Fuji apple and Asian pear flavors. The open-textured finish is filled with spicy richness. Drink now through 2023. 3,500 cases made.
