Tasting notes:

The nose opens with bursts of green apple, toasted brioche, honeysuckle and lemon cream pie. The palate is full yet bright, offering a pleasant viscosity and subtle notes of clove and tropical fruit. The clean finish adds an exclamation point with elegance.

About the wine:

The Chardonnay grapes for this wine come from vineyards in the Oak Knoll District of the Napa Valley where well-drained, loamy soils and a marine-influenced climate yield Chardonnay grapes with rich, balanced flavors.

After careful harvesting from mid August to Mid September, the grapes are pressed and the must undergoes barrel fermentation and 9 months ageing in French Barrels (19% new oak).

Food match:

The perfect balance of body and acidity makes this an ideal food wine. Recipe ingredients which complement the wine are almonds, hazelnuts, tarragon, lime zest and lemon thyme. Restrained use of mild mustard is also a good match. Serve with seafood or lighter meats.
