Lemon cream, brioche, white peach, baked pear, and citrus aromas framed by floral notes. The rich palate texture is achieved through the use of classic Burgundian techniques, such as primary and malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels and weekly stirring of the lees. The palate is balanced by fresh flavors of apple, pear, and Meyer lemon cream with a long, sweet oak finish. Pair with triple crème brie cheese, lemon-herb roasted chicken, or grilled halibut in lemon beurre blanc sauce.

Light aromas of baked lemon, clotted cream and honeysuckle show on the nose of this bottling. There's bright acidity, with fresh flavors of melon and lemon on the palate, which lead into marzipan and sea salt toward the lush finish.

Light, bright gold. Tangerine, pear nectar, jasmine and a hint of tarragon on the fragrant nose. Dry and chewy in texture, offering vibrant citrus and orchard fruit flavors that unwind slowly with air. Shows tight focus and strong persistence on the finish, which features smoky lees and bitter orange pith flourishes.

Also from the Arroyo Seco, the 2018 Chardonnay Arroyo Vista offers a tropical melon and papaya-scented nose to go with a touch of brioche and honeyed richness, medium body, juicy acidity, and a soft, easy-drinking style suited for drinking over the coming year or two.

Crisp, with celery notes to the dried white fruit flavors. The spicy finish bears honeyed hints. Drink now. 5,458 cases made.
