2013 Chardonnay, 'Jon Boat', Carneros Magnum
Vineyard Notes: From a collection of vineyards within the Carneros region, the most notable being the Hudson Ranch. The vintage was an early one by most accounts; perfect start to spring with a very warm summer and above average yields. Harvested on September 12th & September 16th.
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: Stainless steel fermented and aged sur lees. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Golden straw in color. Very complex nose of lemon Starburst, lychee, orange cream soda, cut grass, thyme, and a minerality that reminds me of sea spray. Expansive, lush flavors of key lime pie, kiwi, lemon thyme, papaya, and licorice. Long, fat finish of quince and key limes.
