From the winery -

This wine reminds me of what my 2002 Chardonnay would have tasted like if we'd had Dijon clones. The 2002 was a blockbuster wine and is still delicious. The aromas are very complex yet fruit forward. Look for fruit aromas of limetta and white peach with spices of cinnamon and high-elevation grown Sikotak clove. All this excitement is wrapped up with a hint of fresh baked pecan pie. The flavor is a great definition of power and grace. Ripe fruit of limetta blossom, pear, white peach with a hint of green Spanish olive abound. The structure is classic cool, maritime late ripening mineral, rocky acidity, while the finish is a beautifully long essence of Anjou pear brioche.

Previous Vintage Tasting Notes

This is our first Nuthouse Chardonnay to be dominantly from Lone Star Vineyard. Unlike Pinot Noir, we have found that Chardonnay vines require more age before "making the grade". In this case, the vines were 8 years old. Very bright aromas of white peaches, roasted hazelnuts, with blossom honey and a unique fresh roasted wheat kernel jump out of the glass. The flavor has a surprising concentration of white peach and hint of melon up front and in the juicy mid-palate, all tethered to an exciting Meyer lemon cool climate mineral backbone. A fresh-fruited finish is framed by delicious roasted hazelnut, vanilla, and key lime citrus long after the glass is emptied.
