This is a classic cool climate Chardonnay made in a traditional style. Aromas of citrus, pears and nutmeg waft from the glass, with just a hint of vanilla and toasty oak from aging in barrel. Mouth-coating viscosity on the palate balanced by naturally fresh, crisp acidity. Completely dry, this is an elegantly balanced and structured Chardonnay. The aromas are classic Santa Barbara Chardonnay with hints of pears, apples and citrus, nicely framed with beautiful French oak. In the mouth, the wine is succulent and balanced with fresh acidity.
