The Hayes Valley line of wines honours California’s classic fruit-forward style with marked finesse and balance, and the Chardonnay, made with grapes from the coastal Monterey region and aged in 20% new oak, showcases these qualities. Aromas of pineapple, apples and fresh baked bread. A hint of vanilla. A very light overall aroma of cedar. Pineapple, green apple, lemon/lime on the palate. A hint of toasty oak and a slightly creamy mouth feel.
