SKU: Chardonnay Reserve 2021

NEW RELEASE

Our Reserve Chardonnay is just that -- the best of the best, reserved just for you. Made from only the highest quality of the Chardonnay grapes we grow, and with inspiration from Burgundy winemaking techniques, this beauty is then aged 10 months in oak (33% of that in French oak, if you’re curious). All to say, our Reserve Chardonnay lives up to the label, with complex aromas, and a fruitiness balanced with hints of pear and light oak. Balance here is key, and this one hits it.

Nose:  almond, toffee, golden raisin, caramel, toasted brioche

Palate:  prickly pear, stewed pineapple, asparagus, slight oak

Finish: light oak, creamy body, light dryness
