Cozy aromas of roasted vanilla bean, white jasmine flower and fresh lemon zest. A rich minerality and fruit tones with evolving layers. Lean yet oaky notes linger on the finish.

Winemaker Notes
Our 2015 Reserve Chardonnay is a pleasant golden color with cozy aromas of roasted vanilla bean, white jasmine flower and fresh lemon zest. The palate has a rich minerality and fruit tones with evolving layers of coconut macaroons, toasted graham, lemon curd and sweet clover honey. Lean yet oaky notes linger on the finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this beauty with a mushroom ravioli drizzled with olive oil and toasted pine nuts.

Production Notes
This Reserve Chardonnay was hand harvested in the cool morning hours from August 19 – October 1, 2015 to preserve flavor and aromatics. The 2015 features some of our favorite clones: the Wente and Mt. Eden. The juice was barrel fermented and aged for 16 months in 100% new French oak barrels. To add richness and complexity to the wine, we stirred the lees every two weeks. It was then bottled in April of 2017.
Vineyard Notes
The 2015 vintage was early, light and exceptionally high in quality. The vines experienced no hard dormancy and above average temperatures in February which resulted in an early bud break. The drought patterns from previous years and throughout the season yielded fruit with smaller berry and cluster size. This ultimately translated into intense flavor concentration producing wines that are rich, complex, and powerful in character.
