Intense upfront full, rich and ripe fruits. 

WINE MAKING

FOOD PAIRING

Chardonnay pairs brilliantly with the succulent fattiness of salmon. The crunchy skin of pan-seared salmon gives a lovely, contrasting texture to this otherwise smooth, satin-textured pairing.

VINTAGE NOTES 

A normal budburst in September in cool, dry conditions, was the only thing that was predictable about this vintage. After a December and January of searing heat, regional fires and unpredictable winds, autumn arrived early in early February. The critical late-summer/autumn ripening period was perfect for bringing out the best qualities from each of our vineyards
