2013 was another fabulous vintage, coming off the heels of a great one last year as well. This year provided us with wines of both finesse and concentration. Quality is excellent across the board and the crop was bountiful with very tasty fruit. This Chardonnay exhibits beguiling aromas of hazelnut, vanilla, peach, orange blossoms and notes of nutmeg and toasted almond coming from the French oak barrels. Flavors of red apples, pears and cream follow with a slightly sweet honey finish. Our Chardonnay is known for its long, rich and elegant finish, and this vintage is no exception.

Wine EnthusiastFrom estate-grown grapes, this is a fulsome, generously expansive wine, rich in honeyed vanilla, caramel and toffee, and intense in oak. Peach and hazelnut figure into the mix, as does a taste of nutmeg, making for a warm, lengthy finish.
