Region: Carneros, Sonoma County, CA
A shimmering pale yellow gold in color, this quaffable Chardonnay is far from the rich, oaky style for which California has often been known. Fresh, fruit-driven aromatics jump from the glass. Golden apple, peach and fresh citrus are prominent, with pineapple and soft white floral notes as the wine opens. Go a bit deeper and you’ll find a pleasant minerality and subtle orange vanilla aromas. Medium in body, this wine is well-balanced, with a silky texture on the palate, and a beautifully long, lingering finish.
