"Our mainstay Chardonnay is a textbook edition of the World Class Chardonnay that grows here in the Heart of the Santa Rita Hills. The nose offers initial aromatics of sweet pears and crisp apple, followed by stone fruit notes and the light sweetness of ripe pineapple, all supported by a taught line of briny seashell. A full palate of Asian pear with bright acidity leads to the finish showcasing our hallmark minerality. This Chardonnay ages in 100% French oak, 25% new, for 18 months."
