Crafted from grapes grown primarily in Sonomas Russian River Valley. Chloe winemaker Georgetta Dane has highlighted the structure and depth of this fruit by using new and used oak as a secondary presence, rather than the focus, to showcase ripe, clean flavors of fresh citrus, apple, pear with notes of creamy butter and a hint of vanilla. The resulting wine is exceptionally well-balanced with sophisticated intensity, a creamy mid-palate and long finish. The opulent, rich flavors coaxed from the grapes with soft oak integration is achieved through a combination of stainless steel and oak fermentation. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged on oak, resulting in an elegant California Chardonnay with a silky finish.
Notes of pineapple and tropical fruit combine with melon, citrus and spices in the aromas and flavors. Beautifully integrated oak nuances form barrel fermentation and sure lie aging add complexity and richness to the Chardonnay character.
