Fruit is from the marvelous Radian Vineyard, or Block 31 to be exact. The vineyard is a part of the celebrated Sta. Rita Hills AVA. This Chardonnay features thoroughly ripened fruit with a rare, almost optic yellow pigment with a slight suggestion of lime green color. Notes of sweet, almost candied lemon rind with white flower, bees wax, ripe golden apple, butter cream and toasty rising bread makes this selection a true olfactory prize. Very viscous and almost sensual in nature, it is rare to find this combination in such a unique wine. 100% Chardonnay. Pair with breaded Veal Cutlets or a Blanquette de Veau (shoulder, breast) and a symphony of aromatic spring vegetables. Drink now and until 2019.
