2018 Chardonnay, Carneros 'Heritage Reserve'

Our Heritage Reserve Chardonnay is made from this vintage's finest barrels, chosen for their complexity,firm structure, acidity, and ability to age. Each component contributes a unique clone and microclimatesignature to the blend. In 2018, we selected our favorite barrels from Iund Vineyard's Wente cloneChardonnay that provides apple, pear, and stone fruit characteristics with hints of floral aromas. Ricci'sclone 4 balances with bright and crisp fresh citrus aromas, and a touch of Wildcat's clone 76 adds ripenessto the final blend. The resulting wine shows complex aromas of orange and citrus peel. Delicate floweraromas lift the ripe pear and apple scent, complemented by toasty oak, which gives way to a creamytexture and long elegant finish. Try with shellfish, cream soups, chicken, veal, or rich pasta dishes. It willgain complexity with additional cellaring for 2 to 5 years from release.
