FROM WINERY – Early bud break, late bloom, somewhat early harvest that avoided smoke, lower alcohol, lower acid…Hmmm…WOW!
Hand-harvested and stainless steel fermented. Beautifully balanced. Orchard blossoms and early pear scents laced with Royal Slope basalt/loam minerality. The palate is pure Chardonnay expressing yellow apple and Asian pear with hints of starfruit and a veiled layer of lemon and mineral. ~ Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
