Tasting notes

Aromas of green apple and tropical fruits underscored with notes of toast and brioche. The flavors are ripe and round, with pineapple and mango being the predominant fruits. This is a particularly buttery chardonnay that isn’t overtly cloying. Pretty notes of citrus supported by a solid core of acidity gives this wine a seamless structure.

Production

Vintage Notes

The 2019 vintage was defined by a late harvest and small crop. All grapes were taken directly to press as whole clusters, gently pressed into tanks, cold-settled, racked as clean juice, and fermented over a two month period at very cool temperatures. Once primary fermentation completed, the lot from San Juan Creek went through a complete secondary fermentation. The wines were aged on about 30% new French and American oak.
