Unexpected, a nimble powerhouse displaying both grace and joy, the 2016 Chardonnay is our dancing elephant. The other way – chardonnay fresh! Ripe apple/pineapple balanced by rich mouthfeel … Partial barrel ferment + 3 months oak aging. Dance … and dance some more.

VINTAGE NOTES:

Late spring, followed by a long summer. A smoking hot summer (almost too hot) got us a little antsy but then ... the winemakers dream fall -- warm days, cool nights, a dry October and early harvest. These ideal fall conditions allowed flavors to develop and catch up with the sugar development while acidity remained strong, yielding an fantastic, balanced and fresh Chardonnay.
