2015 Estate Chardonnay, Nicholas Vineyard


2015 Estate Chardonnay, Nicholas Vineyard


93 Points The Prince of Pinot     90 Points Wine Enthusiast

Our inaugural Chardonnay showcases vibrant aromas and an exciting depth of flavors. Citrus and lemon meringue pie notes with hints of apple, pear, beeswax and crème brulée, give way to a crisp mouthfeel with dancing flavors and textures. The lively acidity and long finish show the excellent balance between the fruit and savory notes. The 2015 Rain Dance Chardonnay will drink deliciously now and can age 7 to 10 years.
