The 2016 CIX Estate Chardonnay is rapturous. It takes hold of your senses with captivating aromas of citrus blossom, powdered stone and ripe pear. On the palate it is both dense and weightless. The fruit character is nuanced and multi-dimensional with stone fruits, brioche and candied citrus. The CIX finishes pure and long, which confirms this wine will age gracefully for 15+ years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

The 2016 Chardonnay CIX Estate is beguiling in its complexity and singularity, offering up scents of smoked nuts, waxed lemons, crushed rocks and coriander seed with hints of crusty bread, honeysuckle, baked peaches and clover honey. Full-bodied, full-on creamy and densely laden with layers of citrus and savory flavors, it has just enough freshness and wonderful length.
