Tasting Notes
This heady chard seduces your senses with aromas of pear and kiwi and the most delicate hint of the oak that held it.  On the palate tart green apple, star fruit, and kiwi mingle, embraced by a subtle touch of pepper and jalapeño.  All-in-all a lovely medium bodied chardonnay to grace your table.

Vintage Notes
Winter of 2021 gave us some surprisingly warm days and just enough snow to be protective when the temperatures dipped low.  Early spring was lovely - sunny and mostly dry with undisturbed flowering and fruit set.  Beginning in June, the summer rains arrived and persisted through August.  Once into September and more so in October, we were blessed with warm and dry weather, allowing us to round out our harvest season in good conditions.  The abundant moisture during the summer months resulted in a smaller crop but yielded very fruit-driven and expressive reds and sparkling and bright and refreshing whites and rosés.
