The 2006 Bliss vineyard Chardonnay is classic Bliss Vineyard, golden in color, with a spring bouquet of green apple, ripe honeydew melon, and lemon grass that harmoniously fills the nose. From the very first sip the abundantly fruity wine caresses the palate.

Winemaker, Fred Nickel aged the Chardonnay in neutral French oak for six months prior to bottling to introduce an oak element and to create his wine's trademark mouthfeel. The oak adds complexity and depth to the texture; coupled with the succulent fruit from the Bliss Vineyard the result is a perfect Chardonnay to enjoy with food, family and friends.
