Aromatics of Bosc pear, mango and toasted pine nuts are notable in this intense Chardonnay. Hints of brioche, lemon curd, and even pine needles give depth and complexity. The palate is at once luscious and structured, full of flavors of green apple, orange peel, and fresh croissants. The finish is bright and fresh, with enough acidity to cut through the richness.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our estate, Savoy Vineyard, long-recognized as a benchmark vineyard in Anderson Valley, is located in the “Deep End” of the valley, west of the town of Philo. The maritime influence and moderate daytime temperatures contribute to the wine’s balance, acidity and elegant flavor profile. This wine is made of a blend of Wente and Prosser clonal selections.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested on September 2nd and 6th at an average of 23.1° Brix, then whole-cluster pressed to tank and settled for 24 hours. Fermentation occurred in 40% new 500-liter French oak puncheons, and the wine was aged sur lie for 18 months.
