About This Wine

Color: brilliant, shiny white gold with hints of diamond

On the nose: explosion of pear, granite and bubble gum with touches of white pepper, persimmon, mango and white chocolate

On the palate: bright, fresh entrance evolving on lemon, grapefruit and white peach lingering on minerality, quince and jasmine

Wine Profile

Blend: 100% chardonnay

Winemaker Notes:

"2014 was the earliest vintage in the past 15 years. This was not only due to heat, but also because of the drought. We started picking white varietals in mid-August, which allowed us to protect the acidity and fragrance of these wines extremely well. Because most white varietals ripened much earlier in the season, they were able to mature without burning the acidity. Therefore, we saw acid levels comparable to 2011. This seems counterintuitive. However, because the grapes ripened so early, we were able to shift the entire process for the whites into a colder growing season—thus permitting an amazing balance."
