Our 2014 Alexander Valley Chardonnay represents the best of both worlds; the beautiful ripe fruit of California Chardonnay minus the oak, with the elegance and complexity of its Burgundian ancestor. The wine is 100% barrel fermented with only a small percentage of new French oak aged on 100% gross lees. 

 

The nose boasts of fresh cut white flowers, farm fresh pear, and nuances of baked apple pie sprinkled with shavings of nutmeg. The front palate is lively and refreshing with complex flavors of mineral, lemon curd, and citrus fruit. Five months of intermittently suspending the lees through batonnage created a beautiful lush mid palate with a round finish.  This wine will continue to drink beautifully over the next three to five years.
