The whole cluster pressed. The juice was settled off the heavy lees and split between stainless steel and barrel fermentation with light lees stirring. Aged for 8 months in tank and barrel (100% French oak, 30% new).

Gold with green tints, this Chardonnay offers a nose with a pronounced lemon citrus core as well as aromas of pear and crisp apple lined with a floral note of jasmine. On the palate, citrus and tree fruits are complemented by a hint of brioche and toast.

Pairs well with shellfish, cream sauces, roasted chicken, fish, and zesty grilled vegetable dishes as well as mild Gouda and soft cheeses.
