Description

Our Cold Creek Chardonnay is grown in the slightly cooler microclimate of the Sonoma side of the Los Carneros district to the west, where thick fog and cool marine winds protect its tender skins. Indigenous to the Burgundy region of France, Clones 15 and 95 at a 50:50 ratio exhibit an approachable style and luminous, golden color.

Tasting Notes

The translucent golden hue leads you to an aromatic journey with hints of jasmine, white peach and juicy honeydew. The wine has flavors of honeysuckle and pineapple that are complemented by a creamy mouthfeel and an enticing hint of lemon custard. The lingering finish leaves a refreshing glimpse of Summer.
