The 2015 Chardonnay is a fine example of the “house style” we have come to expect from the North Valley Chardonnays. The fresh, high toned aromas and brightness are typical of previous bottlings, but with an added dimension of ripeness and depth from the generous growing season that shaped this vintage.
Classic aromas of Meyer lemon, Asian pear, fresh apple with hints of vanilla bean, custard, hazelnut, and a trace of match stick.
Sleek and silky on entry with a vibrant, juicy quality. Rich and mouth coating, the fresh fruit flavors are echoed on the palate with hints of stone fruit (white peach).
There is an unmistakable mineral element on the finish as the flavors linger.
