Description

One of the richer, weightier Chardonnays Cakebread has made in recent years, this vintage is redolent of creamy golden apple, Asian pear and honeydew melon with complementary coconut and sweet oak scents. Fresh and lively on the palate, with rich citrus, apple, melon and tropical fruit flavors, it culminates in a long finish featuring pleasing mineral and spice tones. It ages 8 months sur lie in French oak barrels, 28% new, with bi-weekly stirring of the lees.
