This Chardonnay, hailing from Sonoma Mountain, shows delicate characters of honeycrisp apple, crushed rock, subtle vanilla, and apricot on the nose, while fresh flavors of lemon, lime, and honeydew show lively on the palate. Partial malolactic fermentation allows for a touch of richness while maintaining the bright, fruit-driven nature of the portion held in neutral French oak.
