The Townley 2014 Alder Springs Vineyard Chardonnay comes from the mountain slopes of northern Mendocino, where the fruit is meticulously farmed to produce grapes of exceptional character. This wine shows winemaker Randal Townley’s preferred style of Chardonnay - one that is fruit-driven yet complex and balanced with focused structure. It is reminiscent of a White Burgundy with citrus notes, crisp acidity, and a touch of minerality. Aromas of subtle pear, mango and nutmeg nicely complement the flavors of rich orchard fruit, hazelnut and lemon zest that are all supported by the wine’s full body and creamy texture.
