2016 Estate Chardonnay

The 2016 vintage was a near perfect growing season, and the resulting wines from this vintage show incredible depth and concentration, balanced by a beautiful elegance and brightness. The 2016 Estate Chardonnay is a wonderful example of the vintage. Showcasing all the characteristics our Chardonnay fans have come to appreciate, and highlighted by the story Mother Nature helped us tell, this wine has a bright golden hue, while the aromatics explode with notes of lemon crème brûlée, honeydew melon, candied citrus and fresh honey. A rich, creamy and seamless texture is lifted by our signature bright acid, culminating in a long, mineral-driven finish.
