A Chardonnay characterized by the balance between the power of the 2017 vintage, and the vibrant, cool-climate nature site. The wine opens with great energy informed by notes of lemon and orange peel, before broadening into an intensely fruited palate dominated by red apple fruit and pie spice. A wine that deftly strikes that balance between power and freshness like only great California Chardonnay can!
