Heritage Reserve

Chardonnay

 

Winemaker’s Notes

Our Heritage Reserve Chardonnay is made from this vintage’s finest barrels, chosen for their complexity, firm structure, acidity, and ability to age. Each component contributes a unique clone and microclimate signature to the blend. In 2018, we selected our favorite barrels from Iund Vineyard’s Wente clone Chardonnay that provides apple, pear, and stone fruit characteristics with hints of floral aromas. Ricci’s clone 4 balances with bright and crisp fresh citrus aromas, and a touch of Wildcat’s clone 76 adds ripeness to the final blend. The resulting wine shows complex aromas of orange and citrus peel. Delicate flower aromas lift the ripe pear and apple scent, complemented by toasty oak, which gives way to a creamy texture and long elegant finish. Try with shellfish, cream soups, chicken, veal, or rich pasta dishes. It will gain complexity with additional cellaring for 2 to 5 years from release.

The Heritage Reserve Chardonnay offers seductive scents of honeydew melon, apricots and green mango with hints of honeycomb, cedar, nutmeg and toasted almonds. Medium-bodied, the palate is wonderfully elegant with layers of stone fruit and spices and a lively line to lift the long, savory finish.
