Description

This wine is a medium - full-bodied wine, with ripe apple, melon and peach with a touch of minerality. A very complex wine with a long and creamy finish.

Ageing Potential

10 - 15 years from vintage

Blend Information

100% Chardonnay

In The Vineyard

The heat wave that began in February 2009 caused rapid sugar ripeness, so judicious irrigation regimes had to be implemented in order to maintain a healthy canopy during the late ripening period. A cool spring and early summer made for an excellent vintage, particularly for the early-ripening varieties.
