Displaying richness, energy and elegance, this is a radiant Chardonnay with beautiful layers of stone fruit and spice. On the supple, creamy palate, bright acidity adds to the poise and purity of the nectarine, white peach and summer melon flavors, with French oak-driven hints of butterscotch and spice carrying the wine to a long, tantalizing finish.
Following a wet winter and a cool spring, the 2019 growing season got off to a later-than-normal start. Throughout summer, the vines enjoyed warm, temperate weather, which ensured abundant hangtime for the grapes to slowly develop vibrant, complex flavors. During harvest, a few small heat events provided a final push to ripeness, producing white wines with alluring aromatics and bright energetic structures, and reds with beautiful concentration and color, excellent acidity and layers of pure, lush fruit.
