Winemaker Notes
The 2015 Reserve Chardonnay comes from our oldest Chardonnay vines on the property. High stress on this vineyard block causes low yields and small clusters that are packed with dense flavors. This Chardonnay offers fruit forward aromas of ripe pear, Fuji apple, and lemon custard. The palate delivers juicy flavors of grapefruit and baked apple rounded out by a smooth, creamy finish with hints of caramel and vanilla.

Production Notes
The 2015 vintage had the warmest temperatures and least amount of rainfall in the winery’s history. Despite the lack of rainfall, the timing of the growth of the vines was perfect. Bud break began in the last week of February, and there were very few incidents of frost which led to a slightly earlier bloom. June was sunny and warm followed by warmer than average July and August months. The grapes were harvested from September 14 - September 15, 2015.
