Vertical Collection of 2016 & 2017 Chardonnay (2 - 750ml)
This Vertical of Chardonnay is a fun way to discover the benefits of aging our Chardonnays. The 2016 Chardonnay is youthful with lovely fruit aromas of pear, lemon blossom and grapefruit zest. It is round and supple on the palate with flinty and toasted bread notes. This Chardonnay has the structure and balance to allow it to develop well for two more years.
In comparison the 2017 Chardonnay has bright fruit aromas of tangerines and grapefruit zest that are complemented by a lovely floral note of star jasmine. It is supple on the palate with flavors of pear tart, sweet vanilla and toasted bread that add richness and depth to the wine. Round and rich, the 2017 is well balanced and complex. As it ages, it will develop the nuances of bottle bouquet that our Chardonnays display as they mature.
Our main Chardonnay is a blend of California and French winemaking traditions. Learn more about our winemaking techniques for the main Chardonnay.
