Rich aromas of lemon zest and crème brulee with a hint of orange blossom. Initial flavors of fresh market apricots and lemon curd give way to an endless finish of toast and minerality. This wine has a rich, creamy texture balanced by a bright acidity and flintiness characteristic of Rosemary’s Chardonnay. This wine pairs well with oysters and grilled lobster.
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.
