“Fresh floral aromas lead to lush flavors of ripe peach, pear and apricot with hints of almond and cardamom. The 2020 Chardonnay is a wine of expansive flavors and great balance leading to a lengthy mouth-watering finish. It is a wine of resilience, showing that focus and determination can produce a wine of depth and beauty despite the devastating circumstances of the vintage.
A growing season that began with promise evolved into a hot summer of continued drought conditions that resulted in light fruit set and ended in deadly wildfires. Thankfully, our Bobcat block of Chardonnay, less prone to the effects of smoke due to little skin contact, were picked in a favorable weather window that offered a respite from heat and smoke and delivered nicely ripened fruit.”
