WINEMAKER NOTES
The Pacific Wind Chardonnay is the result of an exceptionally small blend of five barrels that were fermented and aged in French oak barrels for 9 months, then blended and returned to extra fine grain barrels suitable for extended aging. The oak influence is well integrated due to the extra fine grain of the oak; the barrels were made of staves sourced from the Tronçais Forest that was originally planted under Louis XIV in the 17th century.

TASTING NOTES
Light gold straw color with aromas of tangerine preserve, lemon meringue pie, honeydew melon, and white peach. Rich flavors of white chocolate, marshmallow, green orchard fruit and lemonade are accentuated by bright acidity, tension and a rich mid-palate with a lingering finish of wet stone.
