DESCRIPTION:In 2012, Our Central Coast Chardonnay grapes enjoyed an extended period maturing on the vine, which produced fruit with impressively concentrated flavors. The natural roundness of our Chardonnay was enhanced by partial barrel and malolactic fermentation coupled with extended aging on the yeast lees, resulting in a luscious, complex wine. The nose reveals lemon, green apple, nectarine, and peach aromas with smoky oak nuances along with enticing vanilla, crème brûlée, brown sugar, and butter flavors. The creamy, mouthfilling palate creates a lush impression and is balanced by a rich, lingering finish. Enjoy this delicious wine with rich seafood, poultry and pork dishes, white-sauce pastas—like fettuccine Alfredo, or flavorful, soft ripening cheeses.
