Rich aromas of caramelized butterscotch and freshly seared crème Brule unfold to reveal
cozy scents of bruised apple, oak spice and fleeting hints of orange peel. The
broad, full-bodied flavors come together like ultra-ripe Bartlett pears and mature
red apples baking in a butter crème pastry. In the mid-palate crisp acidity
adds finesse and balance but the overall impression is full, rich and creamy,
while the satisfying finish reveals impressions of honey and toasty oak.
Like all of our Chardonnays, we recommend you drink this wine at
various temperatures to grasp its full range of flavors. As the wine warms,
layers peel away to reveal deeper, richer, more nuanced characteristics and the
flavor profile evolves and develops in remarkable ways. Pour yourself a glass
but do not return the bottle to the refrigerator or ice bucket. We think you’ll
enjoy this wine even more as it warms and you discover all it has to offer.
