2014 Reserve Chardonnay
Highly aromatic, showcasing ripe pear, nectarine, vanilla, and almond. Rich in palate and lingering on the finish, with a very memorable spice.
As we learn more and more about the details of our two Chardonnay vineyard sites – Estate #1 and Shenandoah Springs – we continue to adjust our winemaking and blending for the Reserve Chardonnay. For the 2015 vintage, in order to increase overall texture, we experimented with a small amount of skin contact, a winemaking procedure that we believe shows great promise for our sites. Bold, quite ripe and aromatic, this is a structurally big and masculine Chardonnay.
