WINEMAKING

The 2015 vintage was one of incredible quality but minimal yields. Several years of California drought led to less water for the vines during the growing season. This produced smaller grapes, resembling blueberries, giving the wine both intense color and flavor. This vintage promises a wine rich in color with fragrant aromas and extracted flavors.

 

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of peach, hazelnut and spiced candied apple breeze around the brim. Round, creamy notes of fig, butterscotch and sweet oak dance on the palate.

 

FOOD PAIRINGS

This Butternut Chardonnay is amazing with wild rice with toasted nuts and dried currants or crab cakes and risotto with spring vegetables.
