Bold and strong in character, this deep rich and golden Chardonnay is filled with stone fruit aromas and a sweet textured palate. The criminally intense toasty oak notes have hints of butterscotch and honey balanced with layers of ripe fruit. This full bodied, powerful wine finishes with rich notes of butter and vanilla.
THE GROWING SEASON
Vintage 2018 had a cool start, with bud break through flowering and fruit set taking its time, in some locations delaying the start of the season by several weeks. Patience and a close eye in the vineyards allowed fruit to develop slowly, enhancing complexity and developing layers of flavor. Harvest was also late, with isolated weather that was well managed by vineyard teams who got dust on their boots while keeping a close eye
on the fruit.
