2013 Davis Estates Chardonnay

2013 Davis Estates Chardonnay

Vineyard: Hudson Vineyard, Carneros

Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

Vintage: Excellent and early is how the 2013 growing season is considered. A warm and dry spring preceded early bud break and grapes ripened steadily under optimal conditions with only one heat spike in early July. Harvest was the earliest in recent history, enabling winemakers to make very precise picking decisions, insuring ideal ripeness and hang time.

Winemaker’s Notes: A wine to treasure and a wine to celebrate hedonism! This is a rich, barrel fermented Chardonnay, a showstopper which offers a tangy acidity superbly balanced with notes of vanilla from its time in French oak as well as the complementary notes of citrus.
