Winemaker Notes
"The aromatic highlights of this complex Chardonnay are of green olive, baked apple, vanilla, and a flint-like minerality which blend to an aromatic melange so intriguing that you want to just smell it for hours rather than end that experience by finally sipping it. It would be a mistake however to not put this marvelous wine on your tongue. On the palate the wine blossoms to include flavors of warm spice and white flowers in addition to those sensed with the nose. As for the texture, the delicious red apple entry resolves quickly into a luscious finish unequaled in by any of the Chardonnay made here before or since. Meet this phenomenal wine on its own terms, pay attention, and I promise you will never be disappointed.." - Winemaker, Don Crank III
