The “King of Chardonnay” Mike Grgich farms w/o pesticides and certified organic. Aged 10 months, no MLF. Medium lemon color with aromas of stone & citrus fruits. On the palate flavors of apple, pear & lemon citrus flavors, with honeysuckle, vanilla & toasty oak notes. Nice balance with acidity on long finish with a toasty mineral ending. Not your typical CA Chard, very nice!

Pale lemon with complex aromas of fresh ripe citrus and tropical fruits with grassy floral notes. On the palate flavors of peach, grapefruit and melon with lemongrass and floral herb notes. Long finish ending with juicy fruit, herb and grassy citrus notes, lively acidity with mineral character. Outstanding! Will reward with a few years of age!

Lemon / pear on the palate. Less oak than in the past (a good thing) so a cleaner Chardonnay. February 2023.

Extremely fruit forward. Melons and pears. Pretty much fruit cocktail throughout with subtle acidity. Probably needs some age.
