The story of our 2015 Glacier Ridge Chardonnay is one of restrained elegance. Sourced from a vineyard just inland from Monterey Bay, the clusters reached a sufficient level of maturity to present pure varietal character while maintaining a firm acidic backbone for balance.
The driving force behind our 2015 bottling of Three Sisters White is an elegant minerality. The resulting cuvee is one of composed restraint that allows all of the components to shine without creating any shadows.
This wine is full of character, with a complex nose of citrus, ripe tangerine, lemon zest, pear and hazelnut. Exquisitely balanced with vibrancy and energy, this chardonnay has a superb concentration in the mouth with great minerality. The interaction between the firm acidity and the elegant viscosity serves as a backdrop for the beautifully developed flavors of lemon peel and chalky minerality. From nose to finish the whole experience is buoyed by tight grained French Oak barrels of which 50% were new and 50% once used. Limited Quantities Available!
Our primary goal when blending rosé is to make it delicious! To us, rosé should be bright, playful and above all else, approachable. Chill this wine 50˚ and take a moment to gaze upon the beautiful pink hue while in your glass.
For better or worse, all wines have personalities. Some are laid back, some are dark and brooding; this wine is really, really happy. The aromatics gleefully leap forth filling your glass with notes of ripe honeydew melon, zesty orange blossom and lemongrass. The flavors on the silky mid-palate harmonize amazingly well with the jubilant nose to keep your senses brimming. This wine shows best slightly chilled and the possibilities for food pairing are limited only by your imagination. Limited Quantities Available!
