Tasting Notes
Update Spring 2021: Light yet still creamy, with lime, lemon, and vanilla notes. It is showing its age while still maintaining a beautiful, crisp acidity. Tasting notes at the time of release: Our Chardonnay is a fruit forward wine with aromas of pineapple, white peach and a hint of oak. Enjoy this wine with salmon, chicken or pasta.

Winemaker Notes
This is our first Chardonnay produced with estate grown grapes. About 60% of the grapes came from Fort Berens Estate vineyard and the remaining from Sundial Vineyard, south of Oliver. The Chardonnay from our estate vineyard was picked on September 28th at 22.4 Brix with an extremely low yield of 1.5 tons per acre. The Chardonnay from Sundial vineyard was picked on October 10th at 21.4 Brix. About a third of the volume was fermented in new and used French barrels, while the remainder was fermented cool in stainless steel tanks. About 30% of the Chardonnay was aged in French barrels until bottling on June 5th 2012.
Other Notes
Wine is showing its age and should be consumed soon.
