The 2015 Skywalker Chardonnay comes from a cooler climate season; with a slight green hue, the color resembles drying hay still in its youth. Upon tasting, hints of white pear, ripe fig, melon, and tropical notes of pineapple. Continuous flavor fills the palate with obvious minerality and confectionary notes of warm spice and toffee implying the barrel influence on this wine. This Chardonnay is finished, layered, and pleasing to the senses. Aged 12 months in oak, the wine fermented sur lie, creating richness and complexity. Due to limited production, 2 bottles maximum can per purchased per order.

Tasting Note from Wine Spectator: Combines pure, rich flavors with deft balance and a graceful texture, allowing the mix of lemon, pear, white peach and green apple notes to glide along, ending with a burst of fruitiness. Has the intensity and balance to gain, as the texture is a touch raw. Drink now through 2020. 92 cases made.
