Clos Du Bois Chardonnay - 750ML
Brilliant silver straw yellow in color. Intense aromas of apple blossom, ripe pear, and sweet lemon drop are complemented by toasty oak, spice, and cream. In the mouth, the silky texture of the wine is overlaid with bright, juicy flavors of ripe apple and pear for a long and fresh finish.
The year opened with average precipitation. Bud break was a week or so behind the previous year, but the vines were off to a great start. Classic weather followed during fruit set with cool mornings and warm, sunny afternoons. A July heat wave signaled the crop to ripen and harvest began as expected. Record-breaking heat and low humidity in September pushed speedy picking for grapes at optimum Brix.
