4.5 Stars & 91 Points - Sam Kim Wine Orbit
"Beautifully ripe and inviting, the wine shows golden peach, mango, baked fig and vanillin oak characters on the nose with a hint of butterscotch. It's succulent and plump on the palate, delivering delectable fruit flavours and creamy mouthfeel, leading to a comfortingly delicious finish. At its best: now to 2022."

Light golden in color with aromas of fresh apples, citrus and nectarine. The palate is rich yet crisp, with flavors of apricot, baked peaches, lemon and vanilla. Undertones of crème brûlée and toast are met with balanced acidity and a smooth finish. This easy to drink style Chardonnay can pair with a variety of food and also stands well on its own.

Winery note
"Our 2018 Chardonnay features fruit from our own vineyards in the Lodi AVA, which produces fruit-forward wines of richness and texture. The warm summer temperatures during the day in this region keeps acids high while still bringing the fruit to optimal maturity. We hand-picked and whole-cluster pressed the grapes, and then racked roughly half of the juice into barrels for primary and malolactic fermentations. The remainder of the fruit was tank fermented at cooler temperatures to preserve the bright fruit and Firm structure. After fermentations, the wine was kept in stainless steel tanks to help balance out the wine."
