Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2013 Chardonnay Estate comes from a selection of three different vineyard blocks and spent eight months in 30% new French oak. It offers attractive notes of apple skin, melon, citrus and a touch of minerality in a medium-bodied, lightly texture, fresh and highly drinkable package.
Our Estate wines are designed to capture the whole essence of our historic vineyard. By blending the variety of clones from different blocks throughout our estate, we create each of these bottlings to be a bold, beautiful and complete representation of the varietal and our vineyard.
|Our historic Chamisal property, the first vineyard planted in the Edna Valley, has long been producing wines of a distinctive character - bold, complex and intriguing. With the ideal climate of the region and the exceptional clonal selection planted on our vineyard, our winemaking philosophy is to simply reflect the natural characteristics of this remarkable estate.
