R. Merlo Estate Vineyards takes a different approach than most when it comes to crafting their nicely balanced, beautifully flavored, old-world styled Chardonnay. R. Merlo sticks to an old-world winemaking style to bring out the wine's natural, vibrant fruit flavors and makes a Chardonnay that is absolutely unique. This Chardonnay shows gentle aromas of light vanilla cream, fresh pineapples, and perfumed citrus blossom. On the palate, the wine has a viscous mouthfeel with flavors of Graverstein apple cobbler, hints of honey, and a background of creamy lemon custard pie, bits of dried vanilla bean and subtle oak.
