2011 Chardonnay is lighter in style than in past vintages with minimal oak influence. Aromas of lemon custard are enriched by toasted almond and subtle pear fragrances. Apple and citrus fill the palate along with notes of fresh baked bread. It is a well-balanced wine with a lively mouth feel that gives way to a clean and elegant finish.

“A mild winter and extended spring in 2011 provided optimal
conditions for accelerated growth and an abundant crop. A generous
primary growth allowed us to choose the most desirable clusters and
reduce the crop load sooner. An early crop reduction and precise
viticulture practices showed desirable ripening through the season.
Hot, dry weather at the end of August and through September
produced excellent flavour development and complexity.” - Steve Carberry
