Displays a wonderful balance of rich fruit, minerality, and fine acidity on the palate, this Chardonnay is distinctively floral and infused with aromatic notes of ripe pear and apple, followed by complementary expressions of citrus and pineapple. Barrel fermentation, plus 100% malolactic fermentation allows the charming character to shine through, and lees aging contributes a layer of texture and richness. Finishing quite long, it’s an elegant, expressive wine. Gary A. Luchtel, Winemaker. 275 cases produced.
