2012 Chardonnay

VINEYARDS

The grapes for the 2012 Chardonnay come predominently from the Casablanca Valley. This appellation demonstrates distinct climatic characteristics with warm, dry afternoons and cool evenings due to daily breezes and the Antarctic "Humboldt Current" that moderates the higher temperatures, along with the random sightings of fog.

WINEMAKING

Grapes were harvested during March and April. The fruit was hand sorted and bunches were then whole-cluster pressed.

TASTING NOTES

The 2012 Chardonnay shows aromas of fresh citrus, peaches, melons, tropical fruit and hints of minerality. On the palate, the wine is lush and crisp, with bright fruit followed by hints of butter and light oak on the lingering finish.
