Description
We are thrilled to offer this limited release, purchases are limited to 3-bottles. Sourced exclusively from the historic W.S. Keyes Vineyard on Howell Mountain, this 2017 Chardonnay is masterfully crafted by Winemaker Chris Carpenter. Displaying an elegantly soft touch of new French oak, this Chardonnay’s foremost identity is derived from the volcanic soils from which it is grown. An unmistakable minerality is interlaced with pear, white peach, and bright citrus notes. Stirred on its lees for 18 months, this Chardonnay’s mouthfeel is luxurious and perfectly balanced by an acid profile that elongates the flavors well beyond the sip.
