VML 2012 Chardonnay
Smells crisp! Green apples and citrus. Delightfully fruit and acid driven. Don’t expect oaky or buttery here. The structure is well crafted giving the palate a bit of a ride. It’s a journey that isn’t short lived nor simple.

Winemaker Notes: “This flagship Chardonnay is the first of three to release from the 2012 vintage and these white wines are truly some of the best Ginny has crafted! Lemon curd, raw almonds, expressive citrus and a slight hint of flint comprise the intricate aromas of this wine. On the mouth-watering palate lemon crème, dried apricot and Gravenstein apples combine with a textural acidity that finishes long and refreshing. Not cloying this wine finishes dry and will complement many foods such as fresh salmon or halibut. “
