Winemaker's Notes

Our Chardonnay comes from the Spanish Creek vineyard in the Sierra Foothills. Our winemaker, Tom Jones, crafted the 2018 vintage in French Oak to create a rich and luxurious wine. This wine displays lovely fruit aromas, along with a hint vanilla. On the palate, flavors of apple and pear continue to unfold with a rich, creamy body and subtle notes of sweet oak, with a smooth and fresh finish providing poise and finesse.

 

Tasting Notes

Lovely aromas of pear, apricot, honey crisp apple, and vanilla. The flavors of apple and pear continue to unfold with a rich, creamy body and a touch of sweet oak. There is a long finish that is both smooth and fresh with the fruit notes of apple and pear lingering to the end.
