2014 Limited Release Extended Aging Chardonnay
Last year, while tasting through our best Chardonnay lots, we thought some would benefit from extended time in barrel. So we left ‘em to see what would happen, and we were right! We used 100% new French oak and the extended time in barrel gave the wine more complexity and great oak integration.
