The nose features aromas of clean stone fruit with citrus. The palate impression shows crisp pear, followed by a ripe mid-palate with a hint of vanilla and white peach. The long finish persists on the tongue and throat. Pair this lovely chardonnay with Fettuccine with White Chicken Ragu, roasted winter vegetables, or with cheeses such as triple cream cow’s milk or mild blue cheese. Drink 2019–2029.
2015 delivered an extraordinarily hot summer. Things returned to normal ranges by late summer/early fall. The fruit was pressed gently and settled, then aged 18 months in French oak barrels, none of which were new. Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally in barrel.
