2015 Herman Vineyard Chardonnay
Old Vine Chardonnay, picked in the early morning, aged in barrel "sur-lie" with batonnage stirring during malolactic fermentation to develop richness and texture while maintaining freshness.
The 2015 Chardonnay gives notes of lemon curd, grapefruit peel and ripe peaches with touches of fresh hay and toast. Medium-bodied, with an oiliness to the texture and crisp backbone.
"The 2016 Chardonnay Herman Vineyard offers up scents of pear tart, honeydew melon and allspice with a waft of coriander seed. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives lovely freshness and lift to the spicy flavors, finishing with lovely purity. "
