The winery's various Chardonnays are defined by their varying clonal mixes. Here the blend delivers polished flavors of lemon-lime, orange peel and apple butter. There's a hint of bourbon barrel also, from aging in mostly neutral French oak. This young wine is round, full bodied and spicy, ready for immediate enjoyment.
