High elevation, skin-contact Chardonnay, inspired by a trip to Beaujolais in 2019! Picked on 9/4/20 at 22.8 brix. Destemmed, 4 days on skins, then pressed to tank. Sporting a golden yellow color with complex aromatics of golden delicious apple, star fruit and pear. Spicy notes of ginger, butterscotch and clove warm your nasal passageway making way for chamomile flowers with a little bit of honeycomb.
