A big, blousy, classic California Chardonnay with beautifully buttery layers and richness. Aromas of ripe tree fruit. Lovely proportions.

This wine is available via LCBO Private Ordering from Profile Wine Group.

Tasting Notes The nose opens with intense tropical fruit, toast and mineral aromas. Rich fruit avors, especially of apple and pear enhance the lush palate. French oak provides a touch of spice with hints of clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. A bright apple-like crispness balances these silky, toasty layers.
Winemaking Notes Careful pressing of whole clusters minimized skin contact. This gentle process helps the wine achieve balance as
well as develop a silky mouth-feel and enhances the aging potential. Using native yeasts, the wine fermented at 50 degrees in
French oak barrels with 8% of the wine undergoing a second,malolactic fermentation. Tonnelleries: François Frêres and Damy.
Oak types: Allier, and Troncais. 28% new oak.
Harvest Report 2007 looks to be a stunning vintage. The year began with dry days and very cold nights. As the spring came upon the
Napa Valley, warmer days and only 60% of the normal precipitation resulted in an early bud break. As summer progressed, temperatures
rarely passed the 100 degree mark, but it did spike over Labor Day weekend. However, this only helped to boost the sugar development we were looking for to complement the excellent
acid structure seen the grapes.
