The 2017 UV-SL Vineyard Chardonnay is an authoritative wine with incredible depth and complexity. Appearance: The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking. Aroma: Tightly wound at first, the nose opens to intense aromas of pain grillé, poached pear, key lime, chamomile, and orange blossom tea. Flavor: Textured layers of lemon confit, apricot preserves, and crème anglaise coat the palate with an elusive background note of sea spray throughout. Vibrant acidity adds intensity to the long and pure finish. This robust wine has more to reveal and will cellar confidently for 10-15 years.

A barrel sample aging in 80% new barrels, the 2017 Chardonnay UV-SL is a little broody right now, slowly revealing notes of warm apricots, apple pie and pear tart with suggestions of crème caramel, honey toast, sassafras and lime blossoms with a hint of candied popcorn. The palate is full-bodied with a wicked backbone of freshness lifting the densely packed stone fruit and savory layers, finishing very long and yeasty.
