Madroña’s 2013 Chardonnay comes from the winery’s estate vineyard in Camino, which sits at just under 3,000 feet elevation in El Dorado County. The goal in producing this wine is all about achieving balance, elegance and complexity - and that was certainly done in this expressive 2013 vintage.

Aromas of crème brulée, honey, and dried straw jump forth on the nose, while subtle hints of cardamom and clove spice linger in the background. The palate shows off the rewards of traditional Burgundian barrel fermentation, offering a wonderfully rich texture with balanced flavors of white peach, ambrosia melon, apple, pear, honey, sweet caramel and toffee essence. The finish lingers with notes of light walnut oil, classic El Dorado minerality, and fresh citrus. Every taste is a new experience!
