Wine Review: This brilliant tallow colored Chardonnay is made in 100% new French oak. It opens with a shy faint lemon like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and creamy. This wine has mineral infused light lime like flavors. He finish is dry and very nicely prolonged. This wine would pair very well with trout. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: "Our first release of the Gravel Bench Chardonnay showcases the elevation and rocky soils of the sloping East/South-East exposure, which provides the requisite ripeness; and lo and behold – this wine expresses the warmth of a gravel bench alongside the attitude of altitude." - Graham Weerts, Winemaker
