Winemaker Chuck Ortman Notes
Bottle after bottle of overoaked Chardonnay starts to become discouraging, but before you write the varietal off for good, you’ll want to try ours.  A Chardonnay with true balance between rich fruit flavors and a delicate toasty note?  Your taste buds aren’t deceiving you- our winemaker isn’t called “Mr. Chardonnay” for nothing!  Now that you’ve found a wine this well adjusted, you won’t want to let it go.  Enjoy with a slice of room temperature St. Andre cheese or crab cakes with hollandaise sauce.
