100% Chardonnay, Dijon clone #76, planted in our vineyard in 1993 and 1994 and Davis clone 3 planted in our oldest block in 1988.
Yellow Golden in color. Beautiful elegant aromas fill the glass. Full of ripe fruit of peach, ripe pear and some papaya, wrapped in classic yeast notes with lovely integrated toasty oak. The mouth-feel is a powerful vibrant fresh Chardonnay with amazing concentration, seamless richness and bold texture. There is a lot of fruit, fine deductive yeast notes, amazing rich tannins and a powerful alcohol level. All brought to life with focused acidity and minerality. The finish is huge with wonderful contrast between the oily like unctuous richness and crisp vibrant acidity. This Chardonnay is energetic and will liven up any tasting or dinner party, and will age extremely well for decades to come.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.
