Fleshy and full bodied with notes of white peaches, apricot and vanilla with a slightly stony but fruity finish.
Winemaker Notes: 2012 brought glorious, warm sun and very little rain at harvest. Twelve hours on its skins brings additional complexity. Select yeasts were chosen for each bin during fermentation to bring out each of AZ Chardonnay’s distinct and personal attributes. Each bin was then pressed altogether as one. Chardonnay was aged in neutral oak for 18 months.
Pairings: Salmon cakes, pumpkin ravioli or younger cheddar cheese with pears and apples
