Groth Hillview Chardonnay
91 Points Wine Spectator
"Vibrant and well-structured, with a savory essence to the apple, pear and quince paste flavors. Sea salt and dried tarragon accents emerge on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2024."
Notes from the Winemaker
Long, cool fermentation in a mixture of old and new barrels gives our Chardonnay layers of fruitiness and complexity that result in a wine that is very enjoyable when young or after several years of bottle age. This method of fermentation, in conjunction with whole cluster pressing and "sur lie" aging add layers of toastiness and creaminess to the wine. Together these components meld together harmoniously to create a balanced wine that is both lively and rich in aroma and flavor.
