Our Chardonnay was fermented and sur lie aged for 10 months in stainless steel barrels (18%), new French oak barrels (30%), and neutral French oak barrels (52%). The resulting wine is radiant yellow in color and displays aromas of white flowers, lemon oil and Canary melon. Flavors of orange blossom, honeycomb, hazelnut cream and toasted brioche compliment the rich and balanced acidity on the palate, making this a refreshingly complex and memorable wine.

VinousLemon oil, white flowers and almonds are laced together in the 2013 Chardonnay, a wine that emphasizes citrus-inflected nuances. Aging on lees adds texture, but the block malo style emphasizes freshness, which results in a very nice juxtaposition of flavors and textures.
