The 2016 growing season began with an earlier than average bud break and fruit set followed by moderate temperatures in spring and summer. This allowed for even ripening, and balanced flavors. Our 2016 Estate Chardonnay expresses beguiling aromas of lemon meringue, orange blossom and a hint of toasted almond from the oak influence. Balanced and full with concentrated flavors of Meyer lemon, yellow apple, and crème brûlée follow on the palate. Our Chardonnay is known for its long, rich and elegant finish, and this vintage is no exception.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay Estate is scented of ripe Bosc pears, fresh apple slices and nutmeg with hints of peach kernels, lightly browned toast and struck flint. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers plenty of apple and pear goodness, with a satiny texture and lively line, finishing creamy. 14,000 cases produced.
