Riveting floral and citrus peel aromatics are followed by layered flavors of nectarine, baked golden apple, sweet spice, and lime zest. Elegant and soft on the front, mid palate mouth-watering acidity leads to notes of nutmeg and steely slate on the palate pleasing long lasting finish.

Production
The Chardonnay fermented in stainless steel at a low temperature to preserve aromatics. At the end of the fermentation the wine was transferred to barrel for aging and malolactic fermentation to give complexity and to soften the acidity. The cooperage was 100% French oak with 43% New and 57% Neutral. The Chardonnay aged 17 months in barrel.
