Wine Review: This warm gold colored Chardonnay opens with a caramel apple and toasted marshmallow bouquet with notes of tropical fruit, vanilla, butter, and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is creamy and balanced. The flavor profile is a mild Granny Smith apple, pear and honeydew melon blend. The finish is long, extended and drifts away nicely. We would pair this well-built Chard with an artisanal cheese platter. - Karen & Stuart

Winemaker Notes: The 2020 DAOU Estate Chardonnay showcases how the Chardonnay varietal is brilliantly expressed on DAOU Mountain. Now that the vines are maturing, there is a deep level of minerality that emerges from the glass, accompanied by notes of white blossom, yellow apple, lemon peel and stone fruit. An expansive palate shows tremendous texture and depth of flavor. This perfectly structured Chardonnay promises to evolve beautifully in the bottle.
