Sadly, it's the last vintage for this single-vineyard Chardonnay. It captures the subtle blend of yellow and green berries and apples, with superior length and detail. Delicately nuanced barrel flavors bring in hazelnut and cookie characteristics. This has the exceptional acidity to age, despite going through complete malolactic fermentation.
