2015 Spring Hill Chardonnay
This is the inaugural release of our Spring Hill Chardonnay. The grapes for this wine grow on our eastern hillside adjacent to the Cuvee Natalie block. The key difference in that the two blocks have different Burgundian clones that create differences in aroma and texture. Spring Hill is crafted similar to the Natalie with barrel fermentation, natural yeast and barrel aging.
The 2015 Spring Hill has a big bouquet with aromas of honeysuckle, citrus, vanilla and crème brulee. The flavors are bold with baked pear and green apple mixed with peach and apricot and followed by honeydew melon and pineapple. The full bodied texture of the wine make the flavors persist on your palate. The wine is finely balanced with good acidity preparing your palate for the next sip. The bold flavors and the extended finish enhance the sensory experience.
