The 2013 Chardonnay was matured in new French oak barrels while sur lie ageing - the process of allowing a finished wine to continue to sit on the lees in order to extract flavors - and stirring lightly for 10 months. A golden hue with a hint of green, this wine displays aromas of buttered apple, smoked pear and lemon zest. Flavors of cinnamon, crème brûlée and star fruit complement the balanced acidity on the palate.
