Our 2017 Chardonnay’s color is reminiscent of the faint glow of a drop of honeysuckle nectar. It is luxurious and refined. The nose is filled with lovely layers of honeysuckle, toasted almonds, poached apple and pears, and a hint of maple. The mouthfeel is generous and silky with refreshing notes of Meyer lemon, meringue, vanilla cream, and apricot preserves. The long-lasting finish is fine and soft. Lingering toasted oak and s’mores brûlée flavors make emptying the glass quite easy.
