2014 Reserve Chardonnay

For the third drought year in a row, 2014 was early, mostly due to lack of water. Once ripening began, the hot, dry summer threatened to turn our precious grapes into raisins and it was a race to get them off the vines and into fermenters. It was a smaller crop than average, but intense concentration.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of Bartlett pear, ripe melon, coconut and butterscotch. Flavors of citrus and fresh pear balance the palate. Lush and juicy mid palate with lingering notes of vanilla, spices and coconut oak.
