2021 was a very challenging year in terms of grape growing and winemaking due to extreme heat early in the growing season. This wine was fermented 75% in stainless steel and 25% in oak barrels, of which only 25% of the barrel portion went to natural malolactic fermentation while the tank portion stayed apart. The result is a clean and pure Chardonnay with a great tropical expression and shining bright acidity to make this wine easy drinking, delicate and approachable. Opening this bottle felt like a walk in an orchard with intense aromas of pear and peach, but also pineapple and a hint of zesty passion fruits. The palate is straight forward, round and elegant with notes of peach, red apple laced with mango, a hint of vanilla and very light wooden spice on the finish. (CWC, 07/01/23). 270 cases made.
