Our flagship Chardonnay is representative of the world-class Chardonnay consistently produced from the celebrated Sleepy Hollow Vineyard. This wine offers aromas of jasmine, sandalwood and vanilla along with richer notes of brioche and butterscotch. On the palate, lively minerality adds complexity to characteristics of green apple, Crenshaw melon, ripe Bosc pear and Meyer lemon accented by notes of butter and cream. Rich and vibrant, this elegant Chardonnay has a satiny smooth finish with alluring hints of cinnamon and hard spices.

Lightly toasted almond, melted butter, chalk and Meyer lemon scents are delicately woven together in this expressive yet restrained bottling. There is well dispersed acidic energy throughout the palate, where smoked lemon flavors lead into sea salt and white flower notes on the finish.

Light bright gold. Fresh orange, nectarine and melon scents are complemented by floral and dusty mineral notes. Smooth and expansive on the palate, offering poached pear and peach nectar flavors that pick up a subtle honeyed quality as the wine opens up. Lush and supple in style, delivering strong closing thrust and lingering hints of buttered toast and candied citrus zest.
