2020 Estate Chardonnay
Aromas of stone fruits, pear and hints of vanilla oak from barrel ageing. The palate is crisp and focused with citrus flavors and baked apples. The wine has depth, energy and balance completed with a long and refreshing finish.

"Darrin Low blends this organically farmed fruit from two estate vineyards—Walraven in the hills above Boonville (61 percent) and Dach, surrounding the winery in Philo (39 percent). The wine ferments without added yeasts in barrels (10 percent new), then ages in them for 10 months, where the flavors concentrate into an earthy, airy, long and graceful chardonnay at 12.5 percent alcohol. The fruit has a range of citrus notes, from orange zest to lime pith and light, dusty tannins carrying notes of lemon meringue, giving a sweet and savory end." -- Josh Greene, Oct. 2023
