Beautiful aromas of mandarin, lemon zest, and fresh cut flowers define this vintage of Oliver's Chardonnay. The bright citrus flavors continue through the palate where the taut acidity and wet stone minerality combine to produce a wine of elegance and freshness. Hints of toast and white peach round out the finish. This wine pairs well with delicate whitefish dishes.
The 2010 year began with average rainfall followed by a very warm spring which enhanced fruit set. The summer and fall months were the coolest on record leading to an exceptionally long growing season. A six day heat spell in mid-September finished the ripening. Yields in the Arroyo Grande Valley were average and the grapes had lower sugar levels and perfectly developed flavors.
