Mike Grgich, the “King of Chardonnay” farms w/o pesticides and certified organic. Aged 10 months and did not undergo malolactic fermentation. Pale gold straw with soft aromas of stone & tropical fruits. On the palate apple, melon & tropical flavors, with some vanilla toasty oak notes. Nice balance with acidity on lingering finish with a zingy mineral ending. Not your typical CA Chard, very nice!

Apple, toasted almond, pithy lemon, honey, hay and oak. Great acidity and balance.

Been on a California Chardonnay kick lately! This was one of my all-time favorites! Pale gold straw in color with soft inviting aromas. Great acidity & balance. Bright citrus, apple & pear on the palette with a subtle mineral finish. One of the best in California! Cheers🍷

Beautiful nuances of apple, pear, butter and nuts. Oak isn't too overpowering. Medium acidity and body. Almost like drinking a white Burgundy; maybe even better.

Crisp, with pear and almond. I would definitely drink this again

Lovely gold color with aromas of pear and lemon. Creamy in the mouth with non-oaked flavors that finish short. Initial flavors are very pleasant but not lingering.
