100% Chardonnay, Dijon clone #76, planted in our vineyard in 1993 and 1994 and Davis clone 3 planted in our oldest block in 1988.
Rich Golden in color. Classic Chardonnay aromas fill the room. Elegant creamy lees with ripe golden sundrenched fruit notes and honey suckle. The mouth-feel is powerful and concentrated. Ripe fruit like ripe peaches and dried apricots with a oily rich structure is wonderfully balanced by extremely well integrated tasty oak and fine ripe skin characters. The finish is big but elegant and the well-rounded texture is livened by subtle acidity, nice minerality and fine tannins.
There is great depth and sophistication from start to the long finish and this wine is extremely well suited to be a great companion to food. This wine is also for the collector as it will have great longevity.
Food Pairing Notes
Best served after a couple of years of bottle aging. Serve around 55˚F, this classic Chardonnay is the perfect match for rich fish dishes, crab cakes, truffle-mushroom risotto, creamy flavorful chicken, veal or pork, and of course an array of cheeses.
