An overview of the 2017 Estate Chardonnay’s winemaker notes with Winemaker Steve Rogstad.

Additional Information

“A year of warmth and opulence, our 2017 Estate Chardonnay offers aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine, vanilla and clove spice. The honeyed aromatics give way to unctuous fruit tones of pear and peach, with lemony brightness that carries along the rich spice and toasty brioche notes. This is a rich, plush and pleasing Chardonnay balanced beautifully by oak and refreshing fruit tones.” – Steve Rogstad, Winemaker
