Sleepy Hollow Chardonnay opens with aromas of Pink Lady apple, Bosc pear, pineapple and tropical fruit with a hint of brioche. These juicy tropical and stone fruit flavors continue on the palate along with accents of hard spices, vanilla and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is opulent and rich with a nimble and lively intensity. The finish is elegant with a creamy texture from extended lees contact and barrel aging which gives way to zesty acidity that keeps the wine clean and refreshing.

  • v93

(40% new French oak) Limpid yellow. A highly perfumed nose evokes fresh honeydew melon Meyer lemon pear nectar and white flowers and a smoky mineral nuance builds as the wine opens up. Sappy concentrated and incisive on the palate offering intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors and chamomile and saffron flourishes. A dusty mineral element adds vibrant lift and cut to the impressively long sharply delineated finish which leaves behind a suave floral note.

An outstanding wine, the 2016 Chardonnay Sleepy Hollow Vineyard offers a touch of tropical fruit at first but shows more lemon, white flower, and honeysuckle notes with time in the glass. This medium-bodied white has integrated acidity and terrific balance, and is rock solid stuff. Drink it over the coming 3-5 years.
