Aromas of orange blossom, lemon oil, and crushed stone characterize this vintage of Estate Chardonnay. Subtle flavors of sweet tangerine lead to delicate notes of melon and minerals. The wine finishes elegantly with hints of vanilla cream and lemon curd. The 2012 Estate Chardonnay pairs beautifully with sautéed sea scallops or roasted chicken breast.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes

92 Points by Antonio Gallloni, Vinous. July 2014. Butter, pastry, honey and yellow stone fruits meld together in the 2012 Chardonnay Estate. The 2012 is generous, soft and accessible, with pretty smoke, spice and honey overtones that add complexity. The 2012 is a great choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Rincon and Rosemary's are the main fruit sources.
Vineyard Notes
The 2012 vintage was one of those rare years where both quality and yield were exceptional, probably the best overall since 2005. The growing season was ideal with slightly below average rainfall, moderate canopy growth and very little mildew or botrytis. Due to excellent spring weather, fruit set was ideal. Yields were about 20% above average and the resulting wines are elegant and balanced.

Wonderful wine for the price. Very balanced with just enough complexity to be interesting.
