v.2011 Chardonnay, 'CENTER OF EFFORT'

From the Winemaking Team:

At the winery we are so often caught up in working with the new wines in cellar, and then in bringing the new release wines to market.  It is a delight to revisit wines from our library and appreciate how the passage of time can so gracefully change their character.

The v.2011 is a favorite vintage of our estate Chardonnay.  The year’s challenging weather brought only a tiny crop of fruit to harvest, but with quite an intensity, which was revealed during fermentation.  Time has allowed the Chardonnay to develop and mellow during cellaring.  It is just now beginning to show hints of white truffle and rich custard around the edges of the lime and white peach fruit character.
