This beautiful Reserve Chardonnay is showing a combination of stone fruit, honey blossoms, lemon peel, and some roasted nuts on the nose. The rich and creamy mouthfeel from time spent in French oak is beautifully balanced with fresh acidity on the finish.

100% Chardonnay
Winemaker Notes
With cool nights during ripening, the 100% estate grown Chardonnay grapes from our Dry Creek Vineyard were picked later in the season at optimal ripeness. 50% of the grapes were destemmed and crushed with 4 hours of skin contact, which added freshness to the wine. The other 50% of the grapes were whole-cluster pressed to add richness to the palate. Cold fermented with natural yeast in a combination of 225L & 400L French oak barrels and further matured for 9 months. Partial malolactic fermentation took place, adding complexity to the wine. 23% of the barrels were new, 20% 2nd fill, and 57% were neutral oak barrels.
Food Pairing Notes
Rich and luxurious, this Chardonnay pairs well with risotto and chicken dishes. You could also enjoy this wine with roasted cauliflower and halloumi cheese.
