2011 Mae Chardonnay
Aromas of vanilla, tropical fruit, lemon, candied pear, and apple swirl together on the nose alongside subtle but present notes of spice, toasted oak and butterscotch. The palate is equally rich displaying flavors of papaya, mango, pineapple and lemon pith. Good acidity and mineral notes provide the structure upon which the ripe fruit and creamy vanilla characteristics are held in place. This full-bodied Chardonnay is made exclusively from fruit grown at the Mae Vineyard and has a medium-long finish.
