The wine opens with inviting aromas of tangerine, orange peel, passionfruit, melon and white flowers. On the palate, this chardonnay is round and full-bodied, delivering ample flavors of ripe peach and melon in a creamy, textured wine that balances its weight with refreshing acidity. Pure mountain fruit flows through the lingering finish, leaving the palate enlivened and wanting another luscious sip.

2013 Vintage

The winter of 2012-2013 was dry and warm. Most of the seasonal rainfall came in December 2012. Warm winter temperatures, with several days in the 70s, brought forth bud break two weeks earlier than normal. Spring and summertime temperatures were pleasant and warm with a few heat waves that were not damaging to the clusters. The growing season was ideal, and the fruit was of the highest quality at harvest. Chardonnay was picked on September 10th.
