It’s rich, honeyed, nutty, saturated with caramel flavors and an explosion of bright minerality and savory notes on the finish. Intriguing. The Vineyards: Robbie and Alan sit down to create the ultimate blend of chardonnay from Sophia’s Vineyard, the Charles Heintz Vineyard and the SMJ Vineyard (clone 809).
