Product Overview

Winery's Notes
"The grapes were hand picked and sorted in the vineyard. Whole cluster pressing preserved the fruit flavors with fresh acidity. Barrel fermentation occurred in 27% new French oak with native and cultured yeasts. Malolactic conversion ensured silky richness and a medium body.
This focused, elegant chardonnay’s aromas feature Bosc pear, Golden Delicious apple, and sweet baking spices. On the palate, aromas are complemented by lemon curd, baked apple, and a hint of butterscotch. Incredibly food-friendly, the Highland Chardonnay is a perfect match for cream-sauced pastas, roasted pork, and seafood."

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"There's a compelling combination of precision and depth on this bottling. Aromas of lemon glaze, thinly sliced Asian pear and crushed oyster shell lead into an acid-driven palate, where rounded flavors of pear, honeysuckle and celery cling to a firm, exciting structure." -MK, 4/1/23
