Frequent stirring of the lees during barrel aging added a creamy texture to an already full-bodied wine, making for a rich, round mouth feel, balanced with vibrant acidity. Powerful aromas of spiced apple, pear, and pie crust join minerally lemoncream and toasty oak on the palate, adding up to a compelling and thoroughly satisfying experience for true chardonnay lovers.
The 2009 vintage started much like the previous two, with a dry spring that was mild enough to keep the frost away. The heart of the growing season was cool to warm without incident, ideal for ripening cool-loving chardonnay. Picking began on September 11th, with all our Reserve chardonnay grapes harvested by the 26th.
