Aromatic and beautiful with notes of slightly underripe pear and apple. This wine is Burgundian style with well-integrated tannins.

The Fisher Family has, as a hallmark of their efforts, dedicated the transformation of their land into a place where pedigreed wines are born and developed. Located in the cool mountains of Sonoma County since the early 1970s, the family’s estate wines are known for consistency of quality and style.
This Chardonnay is an attractive yellow gold hue and smells of lemon curd on brioche toast, rich white flowers, and raw hazelnuts. Expressive but not opulent, this is a balanced wine and a delight to enjoy! You are rewarded with persistent acidity through the long finish, reminiscent of ripe Meyer lemon zest and tart crème fraîche. The nuanced complexity found in your glass is highlighted by an elegant spice component of clove and nutmeg from the 42% new oak used to age the wine in cellars that were dug deep into the mountainside under the estate. Revel in the elegance of this wine with your favorite rich seafood dishes like lobster in béarnaise or a delicate veal pappardelle in a light cream sauce.
