Delicate flavors are preserved through whole-cluster pressing. Prolonged yeast contact adds both texture and subtle toast aromas. Stone fruit and citrus aromas are accented with a hint of sur-lie character. This Chardonnay has a lovely refreshing acidity, with a long pleasing finish and will pair well with seafood, quiche and chicken.
Our cool climate allows us to achieve a ripe and opulent style of Chardonnay that retains ample acidity. Soft, toasty notes from sur-lie aging enhance aromas of citrus and pineapple. We limit the influence of new oak to showcase the effects of soil and climate.
On the nose, darker fruit aromas of freshly picked cherries, plum, and cranberry abound. This Pinot
Noir fills the palate with luxurious red fruit flavors that are enhanced by a note of exotic spice
(a trademark of Carneros Pinot) and a touch of new French oak. The wine’s acidity is in perfect
balance and the mouthfeel is supple and broad – a hallmark of superb Pinot Noir.
