The aromatics of this striking Chardonnay draw from the clonal selections grown at the Savoy Vineyard. Wente clone Chardonnay provides distinct notes of Meyer lemon and white pineapple. The Prosser clone, which when grown in Anderson Valley’s very cool climate, contributes notes of Bartlett pear, quince, and verbena. The wine’s abundant acidity is nicely complemented by the richness imparted by sur lie aging which adds notes of brioche, struck flint, and lemon curd.
