Estate grown Chardonnay from the Carneros district of Napa Valley, California. Carneros is a wine-making region which straddles both Napa and Sonoma Valleys.
Initially shy, the aromas of this Chardonnay blossom into pear and nectarine, supported by hints of fall spices and a touch of linoleum resin. Those same stone fruits are echoed on the palate, with a squeeze of lime and a touch of toasted brioche. A fine-grained acidity provides a counterpoint to the summer-ripe fruit, leaving a medium-long finish.
